Today we had a visit from Mawuli Amesu, a representative from the EIP organisation (Early Intervention Program). Mawuli gave a presentation to a number of parents that attended about safeguarding issues and how to keep their children safe when using the internet.
Some of the statistics that Mawuli told were quite shocking about the risks that our children face.
