The Juaboso District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr. Stephen Tikoli has advised parents, teachers, and other stakeholders not to relegate girls to the background but provide the necessary assistance and encouragement for them to achieve their full potential.
Mr. Stephen Tikoli gave this advice at a ceremony held organized by the Juaboso District Assembly to commemorate this year’s International Girl Child Day at Juaboso in the Western North Region. He noted that girls and women had great talents to contribute immensely towards the development of the country. He urged the young girls to focus on their education, learn hard, and not indulge in activities that would jeopardize their education and future.
Addressing the students, the Juaboso District Girl-Child Coordinator, Mrs. Hannah Ennin explained that the Girl-Child Day was declared by the United Nation (UN) to amplify the voices of young girls around the world and to increase awareness of their issues. She added that the celebration sought to address the challenges of girls and to promote girls' empowerment and fulfillment of their human rights, poor learning opportunities, violence, and discrimination.
