Kidnapping Sensitization (KTT)

Sensitization workshop on Kidnapping which is part of the (KTT) Project
Ghanaian school children very often trek to and from school on a daily basis while some are privileged to board either a private car from supposed good samaritans and public transport. In recent times, the insecurity within the country in the wake of kidnappings, in various parts of the country with a greater chunk of this worrying act taking place in Takoradi, school children are no longer safe. There have been occasions when kidnappers have to invade school compounds and made away with children while some of their actions have been foiled leading to their arrest. Government has not yet unrivalled the Takoradi kidnappings and the Bring Taadi Girls campaign continues.
The recent kidnapping of a two-year-old kid, the two Canadian girls in Kumasi makes this project a critical one.
Since the kidnappings commenced in August 2018, school children and our Ghanaian societies/communities have not been sensitized or educated enough on how to evade, which makes our children vulnerable. They, therefore, need well planned and structured education to arm them with basic skills and knowledge should they be faced with such a challenge. We are therefore taking the message and education to churches, mosques, market centres and everywhere we can to reach all and sundry.
