Challenge

About 70% of girls in the rural communities of the Atwima Nwabiagya Municipality gets pregnant before completing their basic education which majority of these girls out shyness drop their education. The 30% who are able to complete their education without pregnancy finds it difficult to enter into the second cycle which the government has introduced the free shs policy to solve this problem. As a result of pregnancy, rural girls are faced with economic, social and psychological challenges.

Solution

Providing these girls economic skills will help them to be reintegrated back into the society thereby relieving the society of the burden of taking care of these girls and their children. Providing them this skills training will help them contribute meaningfully toward societal development as their purchasing power will be enhanced for them to pay tax to the government. Providing them with the skills improve the nutrition of their children to prevent malnutrition.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 30 rural girls which will alleviate poverty and impoverishment from the lives of these girls, their children and their families as the Nkawie community in general.
