Journalist Emelia has pledged support, but admits she is unable to support the young mother all by herself.
She appeals appeal to stakeholders as well as NGOs, and other civil society groups to come to her aid, stating she is available on firstname.lastname@example.org/ email@example.com. Facebook: Emmy Aryee.
Emelia tells YEN.com.gh she was inspired to pursue the story because the urge to ensure the young lady's education is not hindered in any way.
"I was informed by an old colleague from Temasco who is now a teacher at Mr. Lord Addo Yobo that some of these girls end up getting married off, so I wanted to make sure she did not fall victim to that," she said.
