The 45 school children, drawn from the Upper Primary and Junior High schools in different parts of the Northern Region, were made up of 23 boys and 22 girls, ranging from 10 to 15 years.

The Alliance for Strengthening Education in Ghana (ASEG), also an NGO, and the Savanna Signatures, jointly sponsored the five-day programme.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, Madam Alhassan Fausia Tua, Projects Officer of ?My World, My Life,? a project under the Savanna Signatures, advised the children to utilize every opportunity to build their future through effective socialization.

Madam Tua said it was important for school children to adopt effective socialization, as a way of building their confidence for a brighter future.

She advised the children to learn hard to gain admission into Senior High Schools, and pledged to buy provisions and visit all participants of the camp who would gain admission into any Senior High School, irrespective of their location.

Madam Rahi Yakubu, a representative from the directorate of the Ghana Health Service, educated the school children on Sexual Reproductive Health issues, and advised them to stay away from immoral sexual activities so as to achieve their academic objectives.

She also advised them to constantly observe personal hygiene to live healthier lives so that their peers would not shun their companies.

Savanna Signatures is an NGO operating in the Northern Region, with the aim of equipping the youth, women and vulnerable groups with ICT skills for personal and professional development through the innovative use of ICT.
