St. Nicholas Charity Foundation (SNCF), in partnership with SOS Children’s Village in Tema Newtown, has implemented an academic skills training programme for the youth in Tema Manhean.
The training was part of the Foundation’s family strengthening projects.
Madam Ruth Nteful, a Social Worker with St. Nicholas Charity Foundation, told the Ghana News Agency that the training was targeted at the youth in communities with limited opportunities to coach them on how to study and pass their examinations.
Madam Nteful said the conditions in which most of the children live did not make them learn well, leading to poor academic performance.
She has, therefore, taken it upon herself to teach them learning skills that would help upgrade their academic performance.
She explained that some of the skills shared with the Manhean youth included academic discipline.
Madam Nteful entreated the youth not to limit themselves to only lessons in the classroom but to broaden their knowledge by studying from the library, other materials and comparing notes with friends.
