Member of Parliament for the Bia East constituency

Richard Acheampong speaking in a meeting

“I am one of the senior members of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Employment, State Enterprises and Social Welfare. We are grateful to ICI for taking us through the training on child labour concepts. It is good to understand child labour issues as parliamentarians. I am now aware of the fact that we need to do more in the creation of awareness on this issue as a country. The training has helped me to see the disconnect between the Constitution of Ghana and the Children’s Act. I have now understood concepts like child work and how to really define who can be classified as a child. This knowledge will not only help us become better lawmakers, but it will also help us in our role as opinion leaders in our constituencies.”
