Author of Dear Damsel, Racheal Wyettey, and a team of volunteers stormed Osu last Saturday, 6th July, 2019, as part of the Greater Accra edition of her Damsels On Fire Tour.
Damsels On Fire Tour is a project initiated with the aim of empowering, educating, and equipping damsels in communities and senior high schools in Ghana, to be on fire; to explore break limitations and lead fulfilling lives before becoming a mother or saying “I do”. The Greater Accra edition of the tour kick started on 15th June, 2019 with a visit to Ga Mashie.
During their visit to Osu, they educated damsels in the community on the benefits of the internet (including social media), how they can use their smart phones to transform their lives and why they must be mindful of what they put on social media.
When asked how their visit went, Racheal Wyettey had this to say:
“Our visit went well. In fact, it was successful. The girls we interacted with were friendly, eager to learn, and very cooperative. Most of them were excited we enlightened them on the power of their smart phones and pledged to harness it positively.”
She also disclosed that, the number of girls they impacted into was less as compared to those they interacted with in Ga Mashie. “The girls we interacted with less as compared to that of Ga Mashie. However we still reached our target and achieved the aim for which we visited the community, and we are grateful for that.
The Damsels On Fire Team will be visiting three senior high schools as part of the Greater Accra edition of the tour, before moving to the net region. For more information, visit damselsonfiregh.wordpress.com
