The program was rolled out on Friday 9th August 2019 at Wenchi Constituency and on Saturday 10th August 2019 at Sunyani Constituency.
In all about 800 teenage girls participated in the program.
The young ladies were taken through topics such as Reproductive Health, Sexual Abuse and Economic Empowerment by health professionals and women of substance in the community.
Packages of sanitary pads, deodorants, Condoms,toothpaste and toothbrushes, liquid soap, Disinfectants and other toiletries were shared to the young ladies to encourage them to practise all the theories they went through.
Professor Gyan Baffour, MP for Wenchi Constituency lauded WWM for their efforts and encouraged them to embark more on such projects while encouraging the young ladies to focus on their education and strive to achieve success.
Dr Tina Abrefa also encouraged the girls to take their academic education seriously and eschew from all forms of deviant behaviour that would jeopardize their future.
