Stop teenage pregnancy and Unsafe abortion campaign in Volta Region.
We organized lots of sensitization programs in various areas within the Volta Region
of Ghana. The team first of all visited Afeife located in the Ketu North of the Volta
Region to educate the people on the causes and prevention of teenage pregnancy.
Some pregnant teen girls were also given food items and some toiletries to support
them through their pregnancies.
The foundation also went to Agbanukofe in the Volta region to educate on teenage pregnancy and unsafe abortion. All members of the team were astonished to see children of young girls of between 12 years and 14 years who were pregnant. It was heartbroken when the team met school going children with protruding stomachs in the villages, and the bad aspect of it was when most of them got pregnant by their peers who were not working and for that matter could not even provide for themselves.
Agbagidikofe (also in the Volta Region of Ghana) was another village visited by Liams Foundation. We went to this village and gathered all the people in the village with the help of the Assembly in the area and educated both children and their parents on the dangers of Teenage pregnancy and unsafe abortion. We projected screen of videos showing some of our documentary that we did in the Tema New Town and some of the abortion videos to the villagers for them to know the effects of teenage pregnancy and unsafe abortion. We also interviewed the people and chiefs in the village to know the real causes of teenage pregnancy in the village.
During our sensitization, we visited Agbozume as well. As usual, our team was able to showcase some videos to the people in the village. We also distributed some food items and toiletries to the pregnant teens just to motivate them. In Agbozume, we were able to acquire an uncompleted building where Liams Foundation International would camp pregnant teenage girls for training into various vocations.
