12:30:00 PM

Macee Foundation Ghana, a Non Governmental Organisation committed to fighting child labour, has presented a ‘Campaign Flame Torch of Hope, a symbolic staff dedicated to that fight, to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

          This was on the sidelines of a ceremony to commemorate the 19th Anniversary of the enstoolment of the king, which also coincided with his 68th birthday.

          Torgbui Gobah Tengey, a Board member of the Foundation, who led a delegation to present the staff to the Asantehene, lauded the King for his commitment to the cause of children.

          In an interview with the Ghana News Agency , he said the symbolic staff was in appreciation of the Asantehenes desire to see vulnerable children get the best of opportunities for their holistic development and growth.

          We are a people who believe in the noble vision and aspirations of the Asantehene, especially giving children the best of education in order to be empowered for meaningful lives in future, he said.

          Torgbui Tengey said as the Asantehene celebrated his 19th Anniversary on the Golden Stool, the Foundation found it wise to seek his help to increase further the public awareness on issues relating to child labour.

          He said the Foundation had already presented a campaign message plaque to the Asantehene, and that the staff was in appreciation of the Kings positive answer to the campaign.

          Torgbui Tengey urged other traditional authorities to come on board to stem child trafficking in all its forms.
