A group of Ghanaian young women have started to make use of local community radio programmes to spread correct information, eradicating fears by debunking myths and false stories.
Pearl Nikki Quarmyne, who’s based in Ghana’s central region is part of the pan-African Campaign for Female Education Association.
“We invite health workers to come on the radio to talk about the virus. We break it down in local dialects for everybody. We are a network of young women dedicated to reinvesting the benefits of our education into the community,” she said.
