The Executives of 14 Girls’ Clubs and their Patrons from two districts, Kintampo North (6 Clubs) and Akuapem South (8 Clubs), in a review meeting. The objective was to review 2012 activities and share best practices.
Ms. Evelyn Amponsah, Chairperson of Jema Girls’ Club, reading her report. “The year 2012 was full of activities. Some of the activities we implemented were: clean-up activities, football and quiz competitions between club members and the boys in our school, talks on self-esteem,learning techniques, bead and soap making. Our challenge was our parents’ displeasure of our meeting time since we meet after classes. This was overcome when the Queen Mother was made an honorary Patron. No Club member has dropped out of school and six Club members in 2012, qualified for Senior High School (SHS). This is a remarkable achievement as it has never happened in our school for six girls to qualify for SHS in one year. Because of this, girls’ enrollment has increased and all girls in the school want to become members of the Club. Our appeal to FAWE Ghana is to send us more T-Shirts for the increasing numbers and form girls’ clubs in all schools. Thank you”.
