Programme Manager at Youth Harvest Foundation Ghana (YHFG), Augustina Achigibah, is excited about the progress of girls who signed up to be part of the organisation’s remedial classes.

YHFG is a non-profit organisation based in the Upper East Region that works to enable self-reliant youth, to live in a more equal, healthy, and prosperous society. This is directly in support of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 10, which discusses a reduction in inequality within societies.

As part of their programmes, students, particularly girls, who are unable to pass their West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) are housed and tutored.

According to Ms. Achigibah, the most recent results from the girls have been very impressive.

“Last year we had some of these students, and the results trickling in so far are very good. We had some of our girls who failed math come in and score A+ in mathematics now. We are very impressed with the results that have come in so far.”

Ms. Achigibah made these comments when she spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

The Programme Manager added that beyond what YHFG is doing in education, the organisation has invested in the training of girls who are not interested in furthering their education beyond the basic school.

“We also organise skill training for out-of-school girls and women. We have trained women in soap making; liquid and cake soaps. We don’t just train them, we also provide them with start up capital.”

The training and support systems have been instituted in Bongo, Nabdam, and Bolgatanga, the regional capital, and are in line with SDGs 8 and 5, according to Ms. Achigibah.
