During my final year in the university of Ghana I did a voluntary teaching at Pantang - in the greater accra region. Before the teaching started I did one week of survey to find out what are the immediate needs of the people of Pantang. After going there for a week I noticed most of the children of school going age are home through out the week that I was visiting. When I inquired from their parents they told they didn't have money to send the children to school and they will be glad if the government could assist. As the saying go, prevention is better than cure, I thought this parent are not able to take care of the children because they have too many of them. Most of these parents are either farmers or petty traders. If they have 1-2 children then they wouldn't have too many mouths to feed then the remaining money could be use to buy books and other items required for education especially now that education is subsidised by government. I therefore decided to train them on family planning and contraceptives. I got teaching aid from the nursing department of the university of Ghana and Teshie maternity home. Since I had already gone to see the chief during my first entry to the community, a gong had been beaten to call the people to the community centre which enabled me fixed a day with them. on the 04/02/2010, I did a presentation to the people of Pantang on how to use the female and male condom with practical demonstration, explain to them the various contraceptives available and where and how to get it.
I then asked question and gave time for them to ask question which I answered. Finally, I shared the remaining condoms to the people present at the village centre.
