International Needs Ghana (INGH) has held consultative meetings with Traditional Rulers, Religious Leaders and Assembly members in the 15 communities it is implementing the 3rd phase of the Promoting Adolescent Girls ‘ Safe Spaces (PASS) Project. The 15 communities are in the Cape Coast Metropolitan Area, Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem and Mfantsiman Municipal areas.
The Meetings were held to brief the participants on the progress made during the first two phases and solicit their support. About 3,500 adolescent girls from 24 communities have already been empowered through engagements in safe spaces. The sessions at the safe spaces are geared towards helping adolescent girls to fully enjoy their childhood free from the risk of marriage.
The PASS Project which commenced in October 2018 is a partnership between International Needs Ghana UNFPA and UNICEF under the Global Program to Accelerate Action to End Child Marriage.
