Ensuring the Increase of Women Participation in Peace and Security Operations in Ghana’s Army by 2019

Project timeline: 7/3/2019 – 12/1/2019

Colonel Rafat Awudu’s project focused on the predominantly male demographic in Ghana’s Army and the accompanying security operations. He encouraged female participation by challenging the societal perception of female personnel and demonstrating a comprehensive gender-based military architecture. By 2019, this project’s efforts resulted in 75 additional recruits in comparison to previous years.
