A 10- year national project to empower stakeholders to prevent child abuse, would be launched at Odumase in the Sunyani West District of the Brong Ahafo Region on Thursday November 11.

The “Ghana Child Abuse Prevention Programme” (G-CAPP) is an initiative of the Global Media Foundation (GLOMEF), a Sunyani-based human rights media foundation.

A statement signed by Mr Michael Boateng, Communication Director of GLOMEF and made available to the Ghana News Agency in Sunyani on Tuesday said the main goal of G-CAPP is to create public awareness on child abuse.

The project would reach out to traditional rulers and opinion leaders to take a strong stand on violence against children especially the girl child by working with the media.

The statement said an annual conference dubbed: “11/11 Conference on Child Abuse,” would be organised for children to discuss all forms of child abuse.

November has been instituted as child abuse prevention month whilst child right clubs would also be formed in schools under the project.

Mr Kwadwo Nyamekye-Marfo, Regional Minister is expected to launch the project.
