West Region holds party for school children


Daboase (W/R), Jan 31, GNA - An official of the Ghana National Commission on Children (GNCC) has appealed to parents to protect their children by eliminating discrimination in whatever form among them. "If discrimination is allowed to continue among children, it could make them timid, less friendly and deprive them of their childhood". Mr John Hackman, Western Regional Coordinator of the GNCC said this at an end of year get-together at organised for 100 children at Daboase on Saturday.

He said children were vulnerable and parents must give them the necessary parental care, attention and encouragement, to enable them to enjoy their rights without hindrance.

Mr. Hackman said though no child trafficking case was reported in the area, a lot of children are engaged in illegal gold mining in several communities.
