Alleged witches must be integrated into LEAD programme – ActionAid

ActionAid-Ghana and Songtaba, both non-governmental organizations, have appealed to the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection to work with the Department of Social Welfare to enroll all alleged witches onto the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme to ensure their sustainable livelihood.
The NGOs through the Reintegration of Alleged Witches Committee also called on the government, ministries, agencies and the general public to make it a priority to protect the vulnerable women particularly
women accused of witchcraft practices to make their lives positive.
Mr. Mahama Amadu Jaama, Secretary of the Committee on Reintegration was addressing the press in Tamale on Friday as part of activities to mark the International Women’s Day celebration on the theme: “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum”.cont.reading
