”All women that married at an early age will have the opportunity to continue their education from their husbands’ houses”

The schools will be in two categories so as to avoid problems emanating from the establishment of the schools.

The first category is for those who started their schooling but due to one reason or the other dropped out

While the second category is for the Adult Literacy classes that will be established in all local governments to assist women to attain certain literacy level. In the Adult literacy schools, the women will also be empowered with skills training during their lessons.

The women will be trained how to make soap, local soft drink, candle, pomade, cake, local hair dressing, tailoring and other small businesses.

Alhassan appealed to religious and traditional leaders to continue supporting ongoing efforts to boost the enrolment of the girl-child into schools nationwide. The minister said that the education of female children was very important and because of that the leaders should encourage parents to send them to school.
