Ghanaian Chief celebrates young women’s community efforts on the Radio

On September 4, 2023 CAMFED Association Leaders and Learner Guides  from 12 districts across Ghana were broadcast live on FM radio stations to celebrate their stellar contributions to community development.

The segments garnered an enthusiastic response with an average of 10 listeners calling in to appreciate the young women and encourage them to keep up the good work in their communities.

One of the callers, Chief Akara, Traditional Leader of Bongo district (pictured left) called in and shared how the CAMFED Association (CAMA) is very active and truly works to effect change through social activities, mentoring, and other initiatives in the region.

CAMA Bongo is changing the narrative, and I am always willing to support you.
