Youth Parliament Speaker advises girls against irresponsible use of digital technology

Mr James Baba Anabiga, the Speaker of the Upper West Regional Youth Parliament, has advised children against irresponsible use of digital technology, such as mobile phone, as that could mar their future.

He said the mobile phone was the common digital device that almost every person could have access to, but that wrongful use of the device was inimical to their moral, academic and social development.

Mr Anabiga gave the advice at a digital technology training and mentorship programme for girls in selected communities in the Wa Municipality in on Monday to mark the International Day of the Girl Child.

Madam Leenat Abdul Rahaman, the Executive Director of CARD Ghana, the training is to enable the girls to network, share ideas and improve on their education and trade as well as social movement.

On her part, Madam Kunmogli Juliana, Programmes Associate and Women in Tech Lead at Yison Tech Hub, also took the girls through digital space and basic digital tools, and advised the young girls not to use their mobile phone for only playing games and music but to do research, watch tutorials on YouTube and download applications that you can use to do designs and other things.

The training and mentorship event was organised by CARD Ghana in partnership with Plan International Ghana under She Leads project.

A total of 37 in-school and out-of-school girls in the five project communities - Chegli, Chansah, Sagu, Kperisi and Nyagli - participated in the training.
