Winnie Osulah The Impact of Teenage Pregnancy on School Dropout among Secondary School Girls in Embu Municipality

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Sociology - Children and Youth, , course: Diploma in Social Work, language: English, abstract: Although considerable attention has been paid to the prevalence of adolescence childbearing inKenya today, few studies have focused on the educational consequences of the schoolgirlpregnancy. Using data collected in selected schools in Embu Municipality, this study examinesthe factors associated with schoolgirl pregnancy as well as the likelihood of school dropout andsubsequent re‐enrollment of schoolgirls who become pregnant.The analysis is derived from the data collected from secondary schoolgirls, education officialsand teachers on factors that predispose girls to pregnancy, the extent to which teenagepregnancy contributes to school dropout and the eventual levels of re‐admission. The dataanalysis shows that girls in secondary schools are actually already sexually active though theylack the relevant information to help them make the right choices as far as their sexuality isconcerned. The little information that they have is not conclusive and it is evident that theyyearn for information which would be useful for them.Policy on re‐admission has been formulated but the extent to which it is applied is still aquestionable issue. A lot of gaps also exist in record keeping of the girls who become pregnantwhile in school and what becomes of them when they dropout. Such records would be vital indetermining for sure if these girls become ...

Muhammad Shahid Farooq Inclusive Schooling Model

This study was conducted to develop an Inclusive Schooling Model and an implementation plan for prevention of dropout at primary school level. Before working on this segment of the study, causes of primary school dropout were explored. Primary school dropouts, their parents and teachers were surveyed for this purpose. In the light of all reported causes, an inclusive schooling model was being proposed which can help Pakistani stakeholders to eradicate the causes of dropout and prevent the children from dropping out before completion of primary education. They may become potential learners for high school education and perform better socially, morally, economically and politically in the society. This model primarily focuses on professional, school and social transformation for the improvement of existing schools. A plan of implementation from federal level to school level was also proposed. This model is pedestaled on United Nation's and other international declarations as well as The Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan (1973).

Reimmer Ferdinand Women and Democracy in Developing World

Gender inequality in most democratic countries in the world including Ghana has been a major setback to development. For instance, scholars have postulated on practical ideals and measures that countries could apply to close the gender gap if not completely eradicate women under-representation existing in most countries including Ghana. Ironically, Ghana's population is made up of over 52% females but has less than 10% of females occupying political and economic positions within the country. This study "Women and Democracy in Ghana" analyzes the existing scholarly debate and discussions about the cultural and institutional causes for the under-representation of women within its political system. In effect, the book provides systematic evidence on the under-representation of women in Ghana's parliament from independence in 1957 to the current legislature elected in December of 2008. Also included in the book is the tabular representation of women in Ghana's parliament from 1957 to present. The research reveals that the under-representation of women within the political system has contributed in undermining Ghana's democratic regime.

Emmanuel Boon, Albert Ahenkan Impact of deforestation on medicinal plants in Ghana

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Forestry / Forestry Economics, Vrije University Brussel (Human Ecology Department), 52 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The role of medicinal plants in traditional health care delivery in Ghana cannot be overemphasized. More than 250 indigenous trees and plants with healing properties have been scientifically catalogued in Ghana. Unfortunately, the very foundation upon which the medicinal plant species and the traditional health care system survive is threatened by deforestation. The rate of deforestation has increased by 50% over the last ten years, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The current area of intact forest is now estimated at between 10.9 and 11.8% of the original cover and 6.9% of the country's total area. Deforestation is changing the habitats of disease-carrying insects and creating conditions that may help to spread malaria, river blindness and other devastating illnesses. Moreover, since the majority of the rural poor in Ghana depends on traditional medicine for their health care needs, the present high rate of deforestation will have a detrimental effect on the heath care delivery system in the country. Important plant species will be lost to deforestation unless urgent measures are taken. This paper examines the impact of deforestation on medicinal plants in Ghana.

Edmund Benjamin-Addy The Banking Sector in Ghana. Issues in Relation to Current Reforms

For in recent times, a lot of banks have rated Ghana a good destination to extend their operations, the competition in the banking industry has heightened. To ensure that banks maintain adequate working capital, the industry regulator, i.e. the Bank of Ghana, issued a directive instructing all commercial banks to ensure that by the close of December 2012 their operating capitals do not fall below GH¢60million. At the close of December 2011, almost all foreign banks had complied. However, some of the local banks are sensing serious limitation in meeting the order. Therefore, the study has the objective to identify the challenges these banks have to face and thereby, the author will recommend avenues for raising funds to meet the proposed capital requirement.This study is based on six banks that operate in the Accra business district, namely the National Investment Bank (NIB), the Ecobank Ghana Ltd. (ECB), the Prudential Bank, the Ghana Commercial Bank, the Merchant Bank Ghana and the Zenith Bank. Primary data was obtained by soliciting views from bank officials on questions as the following. Which challenges confront Ghanaian Banks in their cash mobilization efforts? How could the banks generate more funds from the Ghana Stock Exchange? What efforts were made to secure funding from strategic investors? How could they reduce operating cost to enhance working capital? The second data set is based on financial statements and brochures of the banks. There was a direct approach to ...

Ndilanha Agatha Residential Status and School Distance Attribute to Girls. Dropout

Education is a right to everyone as the Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states (United Nations, 2011). However, educated women' potentials and their worldwide thinking are developed, hence, give reasonable judgments in every area of development. Since 2000 many nations have committed themselves to remove the gender gap and achieve gender equality between girls and boys (UNESCO, 2000). In spite of all the efforts done, still a few girls who attend secondary school complete their education cycles. The author examined the extent to which the school distance and residential arrangements contribute to dropping out of girls at Kwimba community secondary schools. Generally, the findings revealed that, the distance above four kilometers had the highest rates of drop outs of whom girls were many. In residential arrangements, students who stayed with their parents had the highest dropout rates followed by those who stayed in rental rooms. Distances to school and poor students' residence associate with longtime household chores, early pregnancy, early marriages, truancy and poor performance for girls.

Eric Kwadwo Amissah The Representation of Ruling and Opposition Parties in State-owned Newspapers in Contemporary Ghana

This book has been written basically to analyse a typical phenomenon concerning the media/politics nexus in contemporary Ghana by exploring how the processes of Othering are linguistically embedded in the political discourses of the state-owned Ghanaian newspaper, the Daily Graphic, when representing the relation between the ruling and opposition parties in Ghana since 1992. Secondly, the aim of this book is to demonstrate how Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) can be applied (or broadened) to alternative settings - here, alternative settings refer to contexts in which a conflict is not the topic of the discourse - and finally, to demonstrate that the scope of CDA can be broadened to include alternative settings.

Emmanuel Boon, Albert Ahenkan Enhancing food security and poverty reduction in Ghana through non-timber forest products farming. Case study of Sefwi Wiawso District

Project Report from the year 2008 in the subject Forestry / Forestry Economics, , course: Human Ecology, 38 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Food insecurity and poverty are the greatest global challenges facing the world today. Their redress is an indispensable requirement for sustainable development in developing countries, particularly in Africa. Poverty continues to be pervasive, intractable and inexcusable in the developing world particularly Sub-Saharan Africa. Extreme poverty ravages the lives of one in every four in the developing world (i.e. 1.2 billion people). The farming of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) is being promoted as a potential solution to the current high rates of malnutrition and poor health of the rural population, the degradation of tropical forests and the spread and intensification of poverty. However, the role of NTFPs in rural development in Ghana remains largely undervalued and understudied. This paper examines the contribution of NTFPs farming in enhancing poverty reduction, food security, sustainable forest management, and livelihoods improvement in the Sefwi Wiawso District (SWD) of the Western Region of Ghana. An exhaustive literature review and analysis of field data collected through administration of questionnaires, interviews and stakeholder consultations indicate that NTFPs are an important tool for addressing poverty amongst marginalised, forest-dependant communities in Ghana. 86% of farmers in SWD depend on ...

Godwin Ovenseri-Ogbomo Refractive Error in School Children

Globally, refractive error remains a public health problem. It is one of the leading causes of avoidable blindness. One major set back in controlling this easily preventable cause of visual impairment is the lack of data on the distribution of refractive error among various population groups especially in developing countries. The present work utilizes the Refractive Error Study in Children (RESC) protocol to determine the prevalence of refractive error among school children in the Cape Coast Municipality of Ghana. It is hoped that this modest attempt will be useful for planning school eye health in the country.

ANNABELLA OPARE-HENAKU What is worrying children in Ghana.

This study assessed the content, frequency and distribution of worries among primary school children in Somanya, Ghana. In part one, 85 primary school children aged between 10-to-15 years listed their worries through a list generation technique and a focus group discussion. In part two, the worries generated by the children were categorized and a questionnaire was constructed for measuring frequency of typical worries. 120 primary school children of same age range ranked the frequency with which they worried. The list generation described the content of the children's worries, and were grouped under six main categories respecting the child's life namely, 'Personal care'; 'Education'; 'Breaking norms'; 'Family relationships'; 'Safety and Environment'; and 'Sickness and death'. The children's responses to the frequency scale indicated that their topmost worries related to 'Care'. The study documented gender and age difference in worries. The thematic content of worries revealed systematic differences between orphaned and non-orphaned children.

Donkor Anthony Parental Involvement in Education in Ghana

The government of Ghana introduced a new educational reform program in 1995 entitled "Free Compulsory Universal Basic Education" (FCUBE). This initiative represented an effort to boost education, yet many Ghanaian children still do not have access to basic education. Based on the information gathered from forums and conferences of heads of schools in the country, one can conclude that the few children who attend receive inadequate parental support. This problem is particularly prevalent in the rural areas of the country. The Weija community is no exception to this phenomenon. Although education was brought to the community's doorsteps, few parents provide adequate support for their children in school. The author of this study set out to understand parental perceptions, values, and attitudes toward education at the Hope International School. Participants of the study noted that an attitude that inhibits parents from supporting their children's education emanates from their belief that one should honor the dead rather than cherish life. They noted how many people in the community ignore daily needs of people,but then go to extreme lengths to honor the dead.

Project Report from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Mass Media, , language: English, abstract: The media play a significant role in the socio-economic and political development of all economies. However, if their operations are not properly and efficiently regulated, it can lead to underdevelopment. Hence, this study focused on the prospects of regulating electronic media activities in Ghana by using the National Media Commission (NMC) as a case study. The mixed research method was used as well as primary and secondary data. The primary data was collected through questionnaires and interview guides. Purposive and simple random sampling techniques was used to select 100 respondents for the study. The findings of the study revealed that there are various existing regulations governing the electronic media in Ghana. It was also found that there are problems and challenges facing the NMC in the discharge of its duties. This has to do with the electronic media ownership, employees and team compositions and the internal weaknesses electronic media houses in ensuring adhering to the NMC regulations. The study recommends that Ghana Parliament should pass a law to empower the NMC to be more biting.

Mavis Boamah Impact of online newsportals on the patronage of newspapers in Ghana

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Communications - Research, Studies, Enquiries, grade: 80.00, Ghana Institute of Journalism, language: English, abstract: The invention of the World Wide Web in the last decade has made information sharing very personal, convenient and easy. The growing trend of this new communication has facilitated the establishment of a medium through which news can be accessed without the purchase of a hardcopy newspaper, radio or television. Because of this, almost all television and radio stations as well as hardcopy newspapers in Ghana have an online representation of news. Could the introduction of the internet and online news portals be taking over from the traditional media or these portals complement traditional media? Data collected and findings of the study indicated that online news portals directly have an impact on the patronage of newspapers in Ghana but have not totally displaced newspapers. This is because while most respondents heavily depended on online news portals for information and majority felt satisfied, few others relied on newspapers for specific information such as job advertisements.Keywords: social media, online news, newspapers, news websites, newspaper patronage.

Maxwell Kwotua Petio Residential Property Management in Bolgatanga Municipality, Ghana

Ghana is faced with a huge housing deficit of at least 1,000,000. Governments, private individuals and the Ghana Real Estate Developers Association over the years have been making efforts to provide housing units for the populace especially the urban dwellers. In the light of these housing challenges, governments have resorted to borrowing heavily with its attendant high interest rates to build affordable houses for the citizenry. Observations in our communities however showed that not much or nothing at all is done to maintain the existing housing stock and yet building more houses seemed to be the concentration of our governments and individuals. This work therefore investigated the extent of management of both state and private residential facilities in the Bolgatanga Municipality in Ghana. Findings included low level of land documentation, absence of planned maintenance schedules, occupants mostly burdened with maintenance responsibility, among others. Suggestions made included the need for attitudinal change, among others. This work is expected to re-orient the state and property owners as well as Estate Officers to improve the maintenance of their real estates.

Essay from the year 2017 in the subject Sociology - Law, Delinquency, Abnormal Behavior, grade: -, University of Ghana, Legon (School of Social Sciences), course: Long Essay, language: English, abstract: This study investigates crime in two socioeconomically distinctive localities in Accra, Cantonments and Jamestown. Over the years, scholars in the field of crime studies have attempted to ascertain a link between levels of criminal activities and socioeconomic phenomena such as poverty. Despite the fact that the Ghana police service (GPS) claim that crime rates have been declining steadily over the years, crime remains a major threat to the lives and property of people in Ghana considering the fact that the nation struggles with poverty, economic inequality, the 'proliferation' of illicit drugs, arms etc. This study also addresses target hardening and the critical role it plays in protecting many civilians from being victims of criminal activity in their homes. The main theoretical perspective of the study is the situational crime prevention theory. This theory aims at finding out reasons why certain crimes occur at particular locations. For instance, why a crime like armed robbery or theft is prevalent in Cantonments or why physical assault is prevalent in Jamestown. Using situational crime prevention as a guide, this study attempts investigate the reasons why certain crimes occur at particular locations in Cantonments and Jamestown.Today, in order to properly deal w...

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: A, Atlantic International University (School of Business and Economics), course: Ph.D. Economics, language: English, abstract: Electronic banking (e-banking) has brought about a revolution in the functioning of banks as it offers major opportunities to banks and their customers. This has made the transition to electronic banking a necessity for banks in order to be viable. Despite its benefits, developing countries still lag behind in the adoption of electronic banking. This study therefore seeks to examine the adoption of e-banking in the Ghanaian banking industry with Guaranty Trust Bank Ghana Limited (GTBank) as the case study to identify the benefits, challenges and critical success factors for the adoption of e-banking in the Ghanaian banking industry.

Kwame A. Ninsin The Corrupt Elites. Anatomy of power and wealth in Ghana

The Corrupt Elites is a simple and straight-forward narrative in which explains the incidence of corruption or the rise of corruption within successive historical conjunctures in the Ghana. Some of the questions raised and answered in the study relate to how the Ghanaian precolonial, colonial and post-colonial states and their mutually interrelated political processes affected the production and distribution of wealth. In particular, how political decisions and interests of the political elites influenced the location of economic activities and the distribution of the costs and benefits of these activities. An explanation is given as to why corruption has festered in the Ghanaian polity and recrudesced from the 1990s with such devastating social, economic and political effect. The purpose of this essay is to substantiate the assumptions underpinning the narrative with concrete historical evidence.

E. Boon, A. Ahenkan, K. A. Domfeh Human and environmental health linkages in Ghana. A case study of Bibiani-Bekwai and Sefwi Wiawso Districts

Scientific Study from the year 2008 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: B, , 69 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Health, environment and poverty are closely interrelated and inseparable, particularly in developing countries. WHO estimates that environmental factors are the root cause of 25% of the total burden of disease worldwide and account for about 35% in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Effective environmental management is the key to avoiding a quarter of all preventable illnesses which are directly caused by environmental factors. In the Bibiani-Bekwai and Sefwi Wiawso Districts of the Western Region of Ghana, the environment has been altered by complex human induced factors, which have negatively impacted on the health of the population. This paper seeks to establish the major causes of environmental and human health degradation and whether there is a direct link between environmental degradation and human health in Bibiani-Bekwai and the Sefwi Wiawso Districts in the Western Region of Ghana. Four complementary approaches were used during the investigation: extensive literature review, consultations with key informants, the administration of questionnaires, and stakeholder consultations. The data was analyzed using SPSS to establish the linkages between environmental deterioration and human health in the two districts. The results clearly suggest that environmental degradation seriously affects human health in the two districts. 80% of the ...

Mariama Zaami Gendered Strategies among Migrants from Northern Ghana

Ghana is not an exception as migration has become a common household survival strategy and the 'basic survival' strategy for individuals and families to enable them cope with difficult economic conditions. However, migration from the Northern Regions (comprising the Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions) of the country to the economically rich regions in the Southern part of Ghana (particularly the Greater Accra Region) has been taking place for a very long time due to environmental problems, ethnic conflicts and endemic poverty. Men have dominated the process of migration from the North to the South to supply labour in the cocoa farms, industries and mining centres. Historically, the few women involved in the migration process have usually migrated to join their husbands. However, the trend has changed since the 1980s with more women migrating independently to urban centres in Southern Ghana to work as head porters (kaya yei) and in other jobs such as petty trading and housemaids.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Theology - Biblical Theology, , course: Biblical Studies, language: English, abstract: This project work, "Succession Practices in the Contemporary African Pentecostal churches: A Case Study of the Bethel Prayer Ministry International, Headquarter Branch Ghana", sought to study how succession is done. Through the effort of Bethel Prayer Ministry International, Christianity in Africa, especially Ghana, has been recognized by some scholars like Kingsley Larbi from the perspective of Pentecostalism. Within the first ten years of its establishment, the church has opened branches in fifteen countries worldwide, including Ghana. And it has influenced the style of praying in the Pentecostal arena in the country. However, one could hardly get the comprehensive history of the church after the sudden death of the founder, Bishop Dr. Paul Owusu Tabiri. There is a lot of literature on leadership succession practices and planning, as well as relevant theoretical reviews. Primary data collection on the field, extensive questionnaires and observations were done. The descriptive, narrative, analytical and interpretative methods were applied in describing, analyzing, and interpreting the data collected. The research findings outlined the loopholes in their succession practices and planning. The study also established the fact that there were challenges but they were able to sustain the church.

Robert Peprah-Gyamfi FROM GREENHORN TO SENIOR BOY My Secondary School Days

In this interesting and absorbing book, the author, who overcame adversity growing up in the humble surroundings of his little village Mpintimpi in rural Ghana to qualify as a medical doctor, graduating as he did from the prestigious medical school in Hanover, Germany, recounts his secondary school days as a boarder. For young readers the book is invaluable, providing unlimited encouragement by a writer who himself overcame apparent insurmountable difficulties in his educational career. Mature readers, too, will find many memories stirred, memories to make them laugh and even, perhaps, shed a tear of remorse. They will find in this book echoes of the trials, tribulations and joys of their own schooldays, for human nature is the same wherever we are brought up. Many of these readers will surely relate to the tribulations of initiation ceremonies and traditions when they joined a new school or even a new university. And then what student did not sit up late through the night to undertake mental 'mining' expeditions the night before an exam? There is a whole range of memories like these that will be evoked in this book. The book is a source of encouragement for the young, but will be read with a great deal of pleasure and nostalgia by older readers.

Arturo Bowman The Red Mercury Run Circle

When John McCormack, a Scottish mining engineer living and working in Ghana, visited Jimmie in his Barons Court flat, accompanied by his girlfriend, Veronica Sam, Jimmie, who had only recently met the engineer while on a visit to the mining town of Tarkwa, had a business proposal. He would persuade him to go into business, trafficking gold. If he agreed, John would get the gold from the mining company in a manner only he would determine, Jimmie would fly to Ghana, collect it, and bring it to England to sell. The two would split the proceeds straight down the middle. With Veronica present, however, Jimmie was somewhat inhibited but hoped for an opportune moment to bring up the subject. While skirting around the subject during a discussion of the dire economic situation prevailing in Ghana, the engineer suddenly said, "You know, in Ghana today, and especially in Nigeria, red mercury is a hot commodity. A teaspoon full of the stuff will bring you several thousand naira." Jimmie registered the statement in his mind and decided that perhaps the red mercury track would be more lucrative than his business plan. In any case, he did not know how John McCormack would take the suggestion. Lured by prospects of striking it rich, Jimmie Quartey, recently graduated from Kings College, University of London, and his live-in girlfriend, Maria Kostopoulos, spent their lives' savings on twenty kilograms of mercuric oxide red and embarked upon a journey that would take them on a whir...

John Ackah, Sylvester Vuvor The challenges facing SMEs in accessing credit (loans) in Ghana

The Challenges facing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Obtaining Credit in Ghana, highlights the issues facing Ghana's SMEs in their quest to accessing loans from financial institutions to undertake various business activities all in the name of creating jobs and the ultimate goal of helping to reduce poverty. There are financial institutions that are willing to provide credit facilities to SMEs but Ghanaian SMEs are not able to meet the requirements of these financial institutions even though they are really in need of the loan. Chief among the requirements demanded by these financial institutions is collateral. The nature of collateral in this part of the world is mostly landed property, which most SMEs cannot provide to cover the amount they really need. As a result, some of these SMEs settle for an amount far less than what they truly require to really drive their business agenda. This book thus takes a look at these challenges from the perspective of the Ghanaian SME operators.

Michael Asiedu Gyensare Employee turnover intention. Empirical evidence from the Savings and Loans Companies in Ghana

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: A, University of Ghana, Legon (University of Ghana Business School), course: MPhil Human Resource Management, language: English, abstract: The study examined the relationship among antecedents, employee turnover intention and outcome variables. First, it was proposed that pay satisfaction, job satisfaction, affective commitment, transformational leadership, transactional leadership, psychological climate, normative commitment and continuance commitment would antecede employee turnover intention. Next, turnover intention was expected to influence perceptions of absenteeism. Finally, thoughts of quitting was presented as a moderator between turnover intention and absenteeism as acceptable or accountable work behaviour. A nonexperimental, cross-sectional, descriptive correlational design was adopted for the study. Also, the multi-stage sampling method was used to select the three hundred and forty (340) employees who completed the survey instrument. Hypotheses were tested through correlational and hierarchical regression analytic procedures. The antecedent variables were all significant and inversely related to employee turnover intention and employee turnover intention on the other hand was also significantly related to acceptable absence legitimacy. However, for the turnover intention model, the hierarchical regression analysis results indicated that affective commitme...

John H Hanson Ahmadiyya in the Gold Coast. Muslim Cosmopolitans in the British Empire

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a global movement with more than half a million Ghanaian members, runs an extensive network of English-language schools and medical facilities in Ghana today. Founded in South Asia in 1889, the Ahmadiyya arrived in Ghana when a small coastal community invited an Ahmadiyya missionary to visit in 1921. Why did this invitation arise and how did the Ahmadiyya become such a vibrant religious community? John H. Hanson places the early history of the Ahmadiyya into the religious and cultural transformations of the British Gold Coast (colonial Ghana). Beginning with accounts of the visions of the African Methodist Binyameen Sam, Hanson reveals how Sam established a Muslim community in a coastal context dominated by indigenous expressions and Christian missions. Hanson also illuminates the Islamic networks that connected this small Muslim community through London to British India. African Ahmadi Muslims, working with a few South Asian Ahmadiyya missionaries, spread the Ahmadiyya's theological message and educational ethos with zeal and effectiveness. This is a global story of religious engagement, modernity, and cultural transformations arising at the dawn of independence.

Mensah Adinkrah Witchcraft, Witches, and Violence in Ghana

Witchcraft violence is a feature of many contemporary African societies. In Ghana, belief in witchcraft and the malignant activities of putative witches is prevalent. Purported witches are blamed for all manner of adversities including inexplicable illnesses and untimely deaths. As in other historical periods and other societies, in contemporary Ghana, alleged witches are typically female, elderly, poor, and marginalized. Childhood socialization in homes and schools, exposure to mass media, and other institutional mechanisms ensure that witchcraft beliefs are transmitted across generations and entrenched over time. This book provides a detailed account of Ghanaian witchcraft beliefs and practices and their role in fueling violent attacks on alleged witches by aggrieved individuals and vigilante groups.

Quayson Emmanuel, Adu-Bitherman Paul Migration and Socio-Economic Status of Rural Households

There is the growing concern by governments of most developing countries over the implications of migration on the socio - economic development of their people. In Ghana, this concern has been well articulated by civil society organizations, District Assemblies, local and international NGOs as well as governmental agencies. Particular emphasis has been placed on how to deal with the extent to which internal migration impedes rural development through the loss of able-bodied young men and women who could assist in tilling the land to produce food and cash crops for the upkeep and sustenance of the household in particular, and the community as a whole. There have been efforts by the government of Ghana local and international NGOs as well as some civil society organizations to deal with the serious threats that migration poses to the environment and the employment situation in the urban centres. However, most rural communities in Ghana are still under- developed, to some extent, as a result of migration. It is in view of the above that this study was carried out to identify the factors that influence migration and its impact on the status of rural household resources in the district.

Abdul-Rahaman Issahaku, Nuono Francis K. E. Pesticide Poisoning Monitoring Using the Quantum Resonance Analyzer

Pesticide Poisoning Monitoring Using the Quantum Resonance Analyzer is intended to inform and educate users of chemical pesticide and consumers of fruits and vegetables on the negative effects of chemical pesticides. Chapter one attempts to trace the sources of fruits and vegetables in Africa and Ghana. The high demand of fruits and vegetables has led to the use of chemical pesticides in Ghana and most parts of Africa. In chapter two, the use of chemical pesticide is justified. The health hazards associated with the use of chemical pesticides is also reviewed from literature. A government and private sector intervention to curb the hazards of chemical pesticides is further explained. An alternative use of chemical pesticides in the control of pesticides has also been looked at. In chapter three the study area indicating the Tono irrigation dam at Navrongo, Ghana and the Quantum resonance magnetic analyzer was discussed. The results and discussion have being looked at simultaneously in chapter four which saw the consumption of vegetables and fruits exposed to chemical pesticides as potentially very dangerous. Chapter five provides some conclusion and recommendations to all readers.

Using data collected in selected schools in Embu Municipality, this study examinesthe factors associated with schoolgirl pregnancy as well as the likelihood of school dropout andsubsequent re‐enrollment of schoolgirls who become pregnant.The analysis is derived from the data collected from secondary schoolgirls, education officialsand teachers on factors that predispose girls to pregnancy, the extent to which teenagepregnancy contributes to school dropout and the eventual levels of re‐admission. The dataanalysis shows that girls in secondary schools are actually already sexually active though theylack the relevant information to help them make the right choices as far as their sexuality isconcerned. The little information that they have is not conclusive and it is evident that theyyearn for information which would be useful for them.Policy on re‐admission has been formulated but the extent to which it is applied is still aquestionable issue.
