Ghana’s premier and pre-eminent self-defence organisation, Lokhanda, as part of its fervent effort in empowering women and the vulnerable, visited some widows and disabled of Senya Bereku to equip them with simple self-defence techniques.
Senya Beraku, a village in the Awutu Senya District of the Central Region of Ghana, hasn’t seen much development and not a safety zone as well, hence the initiative by Lokhanda.
The self-defence organisation crew stormed Kufuor Gardens, Senya Beraku on May 27 to take some widows and disabled through a 3-hour orientation on simple self-defence techniques and first aid training.
Overall, 103 people benefitted from the successful programme of which 96 were widows, 4 in wheelchairs, 2 deaf and dumb, 1 with arm fault and 12 team members of African Widows and Disabled Foundation.The Community Chief, District Assembly Man and Assembly Chairman of Senya Bereku graced the occasion with their presence.
In the end, Lokhanda was awarded a citation of appreciation by the President of African Widows and Disabled Foundation, Michael Sackey.
Lokhanda’s crew present were Ingrid Epezagne (Women’s Commissioner), Lord Kwadjo Andoh, Changed Man Kay(Fitness Coach) and Alex Osei (Self-defense Coach).
