Excitement, curiosity, confidence from the girls, and encouragement from the adults to stay in school and do great things filled the air with promise at the Durbar, a ceremony and celebration to shine a light on girls’ participation in Science and Technology. The event was reported in Ghana News, Modern Ghana, myjoyonline, and on UTV. Wow!
The African Women Advocacy Project feels extremely fortunate to be welcomed by a community in which girls are encouraged to participate fully and excel in learning, especially in science , technology and engineering; where they are motivated to pursue their dreams, to go far.
This community includes parents, teachers, district directors, the municipal assembly, and the Queen Mother of Pokuase, whose granddaughter is in the science exploratory clubs. It also includes women in science, from our Chairwoman Professor Mrs. Esi Awuah, an accomplished environmental engineer and Vice Chancellor of the University of Energy and Natural Resources, and Reverend Joana Koateng,a biochemist and the science coordinator for the Ghana Education Service, as well as college women like Ms. Keziah George from the Creativity Group at the University of Ghana.
