Speaking to Class 93.1 FM in Damongo, the Minister of Communication & Digitalisation, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, said her ministry is in the Savanna Region to ensure that young girls take up career courses in Information Communication Technology (ICT).
She disclosed that Girls-In-ICT is an initiative of the International Communication Union (ICU) that was adopted and expanded by her ministry.
She noted that the ICT industry is full of men, therefore, the aim of the initiative is to ensure that every girl-child everywhere benefits from ICT education.
