In tandem with the project’s objective, Ahuofe Particia and her team visited female pupils of the Gomoa Dampase D/A Model Basic School a few days ago to empower them against sexual abuse.

The programme taught the pupils to practice safety skills to understand consent, build confidence, recognise, prevent and also report any form of sexual misconduct.

During the training, girls were also advised to be persistent in getting help or response from trusted persons when they experience any behaviour or threat of abuse likely from friends, teachers, head masters, family relatives and other perpetrators.

The boys in the school were also admonished to report any form of abuse against victims and not to see girls as object of abuse.
