Students of Ghana Lebanon Islamic School (GLIS) won Ghana’s Best Female Group in tech award at the recently held Techbooth Challenge. After learning how to create websites at Codetrain, the group, Girl Power, created a website as a platform to help adolescent females get access to safe and professional advice and help concerning female hygiene and sex education. They also created a menstrual care package to fund their tech projects.
