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.
