Dormaahemaa forms NGO to address adolescent issues

The Adolescents Development International,  a non-governmental organisation, has been formed to complement government’s efforts at  educating and directing the youth on adolescent issues.

The NGO seeks to ensure the revival of traditional practices that can  help shape the lives of young people to become responsible adults.

The Dormaahemaa, Odeneho Akosua Fima Dwabeng II, who  established  the NGO, announced these when she led some queenmothers to undertake clean-up exercise in  communities within the Dormaa Traditional Area.

She said that the NGO would work to prevent teenage pregnancy, which has affected the development of girls in the area.

Odeneho Dwabeng called on  school authorities, youth and opinion leaders and parents in Dormaa to support the NGO to achieve its objectives.

She said the NGO would be launched on Saturday, November 10, at Dormaa-Ahenkro, and said the Dormaahene Osagyefo Oseadeyo Agyemang-Badu II, and Nana Adusei Atwenewa Ampem I, Omanhene of Tepa Traditional Area, would attend the event.
