Accra, Nov. 22, GNA – The Nyariga-Doone Women Association has vowed to continue to lead efforts at promoting girl-child education in the Upper East Region, to lift women out of poverty.
The group had established the Nyariga Doone Basic Girls School 25 years ago.

Madam Adombila Ayigiaga, the Chairperson at the silver jubilee celebration at Nyariga in the Bolgatanga Municipality, said they were eager to ensure that girls have women had fair share of existing opportunities in the society.

« We do not want our daughters to grow up unable to read and write. It is for this reason that we worked hard to put up a school for them. »

« The thought of our girls being unable to have access to life opportunities due to illiteracy was enough motivation for us to start the school ».

Madam Ayigiaga announced plans to build a Vocational and Technical School for young women in the area and said they had already acquired the land for the purpose.

They were now mobilizing funds to begin the construction of the project and appealed for support from everybody interested in girl-child education to make the project a dream come true.

The school would provide skills training to young women to make them economically self-dependent.

Miss Meri Akaribota Ayinboto, a product of the Basic Girls School applauded the Association for the initiative and drive.

She added that through its effort many girls in the area received education.

She called for the government to extend electricity to the community so that the girls could make use of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) laboratory built for the school.

The Reverend John Akaribo, Coordinator of the Association, asked that some of the women who started the school project and were widows and too old to work to earn a living should be included in the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme.
