The latest research by Star Ghana Foundation says the rise in Teenage Pregnancy is owed to the desperation of young girls for Indomie, Mobile Money and addiction to trends on social media.
The research says young ladies allow men to sleep with them in order to have access to their phones to take good pictures for the gram.
The research further revealed that these young ladies will open their legs if the men will buy them indomie at night or send them mobile money no matter the amount.
The research findings were shared at a National Dialogue on sexual and Gender based violence in a COVID-19 pandemic: prevalence, drivers and response measures held in Tamale.
On his part, Key speaker and consultant to Star Ghana Foundation, Bashiratu Jamal with reference to a research conducted by Africa Education watch and Ghana health service, concluded that teenage pregnancy is on an increase despite several efforts by NGOs to reduce and or end the menace.
Other issues discussed on the day also included sexual abuse on young girls and treatment meted to older women who are accused of been witches.
An appeal was made to the public and the government to provide support for especially the older women who have been accused of been witches.
