Blema Tesaa Foundation holds forum to combat child labour
The Blema Tesaa Foundation, a non-governmental foundation which focuses on caring for the needy and the poor in society has held a Greater Accra township education to help combat child labour in the country.
Themed, ‘Child Labour’, the occasion was used as an opportunity to address challenges affecting children in the society as a result of the canker.
The occasion discussed critical conditions which hinder the progress of children and also may stop them from harnessing their God-given talents.
Mr Emmanuel Ampofo told The Spectator that it was important for Ghanaians to protect the rights of children to enable them become useful citizens in the future.
He appealed to organisations to support the Blema Tesaa Foundation in order for them to execute their work effectively for the betterment of the nation.
According to him, the foundation is a subsidiary of Tesaa Cultural Troupe which has used their dance to educate Ghanaians on most critical issues.
He said child labour was prevalent in these times since children are now at home, where most of them could be seen in the market areas of Accra were among others.
Nii Armah Okpah II, Chief of Agbogbloshie-Aayalolo in the Odododiodio Constituency of the Greater Accra Region was the special guest of honour.
He urged all to help support the fight against child labour, child trafficking and other things that affect the growth of children.
