55% Ghanaian children plan on leaving the country in the future-REPORT

According to a report by the Non-governmental organisation, Child Rights International  55% of children in Ghana have plans of leaving the country in the future.

The survey was done between June 2020 and April 2021 and had over 11,000 children between 12 and 17 from all the 16 regions of Ghana participating.

“The children who want to leave the country are leaving for a reason. So clearly, if you are able to put things in place, we would affirm the belief system of our children in this country and they will contribute their quota. There are things that are going on that show that we do not have a national agenda that the children have an understanding of”, the Executive Director of Child Rights International, Bright Appiah.

“So they feel that most of the things are done according to their own dictates. But we should clearly spell out the national agenda. Once we are able to do that, children will drive that agenda. We have to be very certain about where the country is going because the children are confused and not certain, they don’t think that when they are in Ghana, things will be alright for them. We need to give them that assurance”.
