The community Entry of Life Again , was indeed a great experience for the people of the Charia, the smiles on the faces of the populace and the Victims (Teen Mothers) was overwhelming, since this was yet another chance given to them once more to prove to society what they were made of , indeed the atmosphere was a very serene one for that matter, we had the presence of the assembly Member Hon.Azaanaang Theophilus Hillary, who graced the occasion with a very sound re-echo of the need for the girls to see the opportunity given to them By LifeAgain and their ultimate ordeal to make it in life ,and so they was no room for any further mistakes to be made , hence he encouraged them to take the 3 year Apprenticeship training very serious,
More encouragement was made, as the CEO of Life Again Ghana, Mrs Saudatu Danladi Mohammed after quoting from ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea “Well, we all make mistakes, dear, so just put it behind you. We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.” , admonish the girls to use the opportunity given them wisely as she promised them best of supervision by the life again team achieve their dreams.
A mentor also shared her story of how she went through a similar ordeal but with the support of family she was able to come her basic to university education and this served as an example for them to see that all hope was not lost.
