Kirsty Adu-Poku


Teenage pregnancy is very predominant in Ghana. Most of these pregnancies are a result of sexual abuse and nothing is done to help the victims, some are even married off to their abusers. Due to fear, stigma and ignorance many of the victims don’t get the emotional, physical and mental help they need. Working with this organization to ensure that people are educated on sexual abuse and victims are given the help they require is a goal I have set for myself. I am Kirsty Adu-Poku, nineteen years hoping to pursue medicine in hopes of becoming a doctor.
