The
Women’s Wing Maidens (WWM), a female empowerment group within the New Patriotic
Party (NPP), has held a two-day sensitisation programme on reproductive health
for young females in the Bono Region.

Organised
at the Wenchi and Sunyani Constituencies, the programme educated about 800
teenage girls on their sexual and reproductive health rights.

The
young ladies were taken through topics such as reproductive health, sexual abuse
and economic empowerment by experts in the community.

Packages
of sanitary pads, deodorants, toothpaste and toothbrushes, liquid soap, disinfectants
and other toiletries were shared to the young ladies to encourage them to practise
good personal hygiene.

The
MP for Wenchi Constituency, Prof. Gyan Baffour, lauded WWM for their efforts
and encouraged them to embark on such projects more frequently while
encouraging the young ladies to focus on their education and strive to achieve
success.

He
also encouraged the girls to take their academic education seriously and eschew
all forms of deviant behaviour that would jeopardise their future.

The
Bono Regional Women Organiser, Mrs. Ama Amponsah, promised to champion the
cause of reproductive health rights for young ladies in the region.

She
said the programme formed part of the group’s agenda to empower young women to
aspire to greater heights.
