150 Girls Receive Education Materials From DFID
A total of 150 girls in some selected basic schools in the Kwabre District of the Ashanti Region have received various educational materials donated by the British Department for International Development (DFID).
The materials were valued at GH¢1,000.
The items, including school uniforms, pairs of sandals, exercise books, pens and pencils, were presented to the schools early this year.
The beneficiary schools were Amanpe D/A, Waamase D/A, Abrem D/A Primary schools, Besore D/A Junior High School (JHS) and Adwuman Manhyia D/A Junior High School (JHS).
Ms Regina Adusei, Kwabre District Girl-Child Education Coordinator, who disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Mamponteng on Tuesday, said the gesture was to support the development of girl-child education.
She said her outfit had embarked on campaigns aimed at sensitising adults and children especially, the girl-child in the district on the importance of education.
Ms Adusei announced that her outfit had also established girl-child education clubs in all the basic and second cycle schools to enlighten pupils and students on sex education and career counselling.
The district coordinator said the District Education Office, had been organising training courses periodically for girl-child facilitators to help minimise school drop-outs especially among girls and also protect them from cruel treatments.
