2010 Shelter Building Launch
Sequel to the 2009 10th Anniversary Shelter Fundraising event, Project Alert in 2010, acquired its own building for its shelter project. For eight years since the commencement of the project,in May 2001, the shelter operated in a rented building, until we were able to raise funds to buy our own building. This was made possible by a fund received from the African Women Foundation, AWDF, Accra Ghana, and funds raised at the 10th anniversary dinner. Below are pictures of the shelter building launch, which took place away from the building because of the need to keep it secret. In attendance were Erelu Bisi Fayemi (then Executive Director of AWDF); and veteran actress Joke Silva
