Descrivete i criteri che usate per misurate i risultati raggiunti dal vostro progetto:
In 2006 until later parts of 2007 in Ghana, there was very limited or no national coverage and interest on the issue of Cyber Fraud and Internet Crime “SAKAWA” and the issue just remained an open secrete which did not generate much national interest and debate, hence fueling it to increase the rate of it occurrence. The project has worked with important national print media groups including news papers and radio fm stations and as a result we have been able to bring the issue to national gazettes, dailies and created national and regional awareness and as a result the Ministry of Education of Ghana plus other important institutions has become very much interested in the project and subject. We are also working to informing security agencies including the Ghana police service through its specialized unit involved in the training of police officers to uncovering cyber fraud and internet crimes and other information and communication technologies related issues and the project has also created the needed awareness to spiritualists assisting such young people and in Ghana now the issue of Cyber Fraud and Internet Crime is a national topic of major importance.
