Philanthropist and Chief Exectuive Officer of Leyla Images, Mr Emmanuel Kwesi Tetteh, has advised parents to be extra vigilant on their daughters especially during the time where they write their Basic Education Certificate Examination(BECE) to prevent unwanted teenage pregnancies.
According to Mr. Tetteh, some pupils hide behind the excuse of going to learn with their colleagues to engage in immoral acts during such period.
He said that he has witnessed a lot of situations where some female students who take the BECE are seen pregnant, a situation he described as unfortunate.
Mr. Tetteh made the appeal when distributed mathematical sets to students of Anyomoni DA Junior High School ( JHS) in the Lower Manya Krobo District with his team.
The project, dubbed “Lela Images One student One Mathematical set” is an annual project which ensures that every student in the rural area owns a mathematical set to aid in teaching and learning.
The Philanthropist beseeched parents to monitor their children and help to prepare them well for the BECE.
“The student should be monitored during the BECE period because most of them use that as an excuse and end up doing things that are not part of studies.” He said.
