About one thousand girls in the Western North Region are expected to benefit from free supply of sanitary and hygiene enhancement items from the Minister of Communication and Digitisation, Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful. The girls, who are also beneficiaries of the Girls in ICT project will each receive a package containing sanitary towels, duodorants and Geisha soaps.
In a Social Media Publication, the Communications Minister who is also Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, disclosed that grooming the girl child was her topmost priority, hence her intervention to ensure best hygiene practices for the girls even as they seek education. Mrs Owusu said practicing good personal hygiene was essential to maintaining physical and mental well being.
Girls in ICT is an international initiative adopted by states including Ghana to train up more young girls in order to bridge the gender gap in the area of technology. Over 3,000 girls drawn from schools in three regions including the Western North, Savanna and Northeast regions are expected to benefit from the project heralded by the Ministry of Communication.
