Sandra Boakye

Sandra is a development professional with a special interest in women’s sexual and reproductive health rights. She has spent her career addressing the barriers that affect women and girls in achieving their life goals, working across Ghana including in very remote areas.

Raised in a humble home of all girls, and having experienced the difficulties that result from a lack of access to adequate menstrual hygiene management, Sandra knew she had to be an advocate. She has successfully mentored young girls, working with several stakeholders and contributing her quota to increasing access to reproductive health information and services in Ghana. Her fundamental principle of work has been developing relationships, holding each other’s hands with one voice as women and inclusion for all.

With her passion for the mission and vision of DFG, Sandra plans to accelerate bigger successes for DfG in the Western corridor of Africa. She previously worked with Palladium and Marie Stopes International Ghana. She holds a Masters in Public Health from University of Ghana and has received Project Management Professional (PMP) training.

In her spare time, Sandra enjoys gardening and making hats and fascinators
