Nadia Zeine
Director & Founder

Nadia Zeine is a corporate social responsibility project designer and branding expert with twelve years of non-profit experience. She has developed and spearheaded numerous projects, among them:

  1. The Prison’s Literacy Project, which builds libraries, teaches reading and writing skills, and creates essay-writing competitions for inmates in Ghana’s prisons. The program reduces illiteracy, builds confidence and competence in prisoners and provides monetary donations to the families of prisoners who win the essay competitions.
  2. The Prisoner’s Society Resettlement Project, which is a micro enterprise project that gives ex-prisoners small loans to start businesses and provides them with entrepreneurship training and support. It reduces the marginalization released prisoners feel and reduces their rate of recidivism.
  3. The Kayayei at Home Project, which facilitates the return of abused, struggling and disillusioned female head porters in the capital city to their homes in the north of the country.
    The program supplies seeds and equipment for farming. It helps the women form cooperatives and connects them to markets so they can be economically empowered and contribute to the development of the deprived regions in Northern Ghana.
