ACDEP's Dev't Partners Visit Walewale & Langbensi
ACDEP's development partners from CORDAID, IICD and other important stakeholders from Dance for Life and Vodafone Foundation paid a working and learning visit to adolescents participating in ACDEP's ICT in health project under the C4C programme. Under the programme, mobile phones are used to send sms messages to peer educators in hard-to-reach communities in northern Ghana including Walewale & Langbensi to share knowledge about sexual reproductive health amongst adolescents.

The visiting team was accompanied by the four Young Professionals from the World of Difference programme. From the side-lines of the interactions between the visiting team and the adolescents, some of the adolescents indicated that they were inspired by the visit and felt motivated by the presence of the team to take issues bothering on their future development seriously. A cross-section of the adolescents said they look forward to experience how technology will contribute to improve access to adolescent reproductive health information and services in their communities.
