Every year, October 11th is a day set aside to celebrate the girl child internationally. This year, a Non Governmental Organization, Abiola Bawuah Foundation used the opportunity to hold a media briefing on the need to celebrate  the day for girl child. 

The ABIOLA BAWUAH Foundation is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) set up to help young girls to grow up and become great women in future.

This NGO supports most young girls which are brilliant but needy in society. The NGO supports these girls with educational materials, educational fees and provide mentorship to the these young ladies.

This year, the foundation has helped beneficiaries in the Northern Region, Volta Region, Ashanti Region as well as the Greater Accra Region. 

This is Geraldine  Osafo Ntiri, the project  officer for the Abiola Bawuah Foundation speaking to the girls on  the International  Day of the Girl Child

All this was made possible through the support of cooperate organizations such asked Unilever Ghana, Fan Milk, The UNFPA and many more.

According to the National Coordinator, Mr. Stephen Asiedu, the ABF has launched a project on 28 the September, 2018 Which was dubbed the 100 Girls Project to help  alleviate this menace.

He said the ladies were taken through thorough checks before they can benefit from it. He added that about 70 girls have benefited from it and have an outstanding 30 people  to benefit from it.

As part of the International Day of the Girl, the foundation also held a media briefing to express the need for the girl child to get educated .

During the briefing a trustee for ABF  said there is a lot of pressure on girls in a sense that they have to go through lots of challenges in other to be in school. Some of these challenges are lack of sanitary pads, educational fees and many more.

Therefore the ABF has taken it upon themselves to help them with these challenges therefore Abiola Bawuah Foundation needs support to be able to achieve more than they have achieved the past years.

The ABF used the opportunity to thank its sponsors for their regular and reliable support and urged the media to partner them in their activities.
