Hemang Lower Denkyira MP Bright Wireko-Brobby has collaborated with the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Migration, and Reintegration to provide skills development training for youth in the constituency.
The skills development training will provide young jobseekers with vocational skills, as part of efforts to address the challenge of youth unemployment and equip them with skills to exploit entrepreneurial opportunities.
A total of 40 youth from various communities across the constituency benefited from the training, in trades like bakery and pastries making, iced cream production, and cosmetology.
They were given start-up kits including baking ovens, gas stoves, make–up kits, deep freezers, and ice chest sets, among others.
The one-week training was funded by the Ghanaian-German Centre and Mr Wireko-Brobby, who is also the Deputy Minister for Employment and Labour Relations.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Mr Wireko–Brobby said the training was aimed at helping young people become economically productive and self-reliant.
He was confident the training would help resolve the problems of youth unemployment and its related challenges such as teenage pregnancy and drug abuse among others.
The MP entreated the beneficiaries to make good use of the start-up kits that were presented to them after the training to become shining examples in their communities.
He urged the beneficiaries to uphold their various careers with integrity and strive to expand, train and employ more people.
The chief of the Twifo Traditional Area, Nana Omanhene – Otumfour Amoah Sasraku IV commended Mr Wireko–Brobby for supporting the youth in the constituency.
Again, the queen-mother of the Twifo Traditional Area, Nanahema, Adjoa Obeng Asor II advised the beneficiaries to put the skills and startup kits to good use to generate profits to cater for themselves and their dependents.
She also urged them to train more youth in their communities as their contribution to reducing the unemployment problem in the country.
An adviser at the Ghanaian-German Centre for Jobs, Mr Kwaku Yeboah commended the youth on their successful graduation.
He said the training would ensure many unskilled youths get the opportunity to be equipped and offered employable skills for sustainable livelihood and to help them contribute towards the growth and development of the constituency and the nation as a whole.
Ms Ruth Sonful, on behalf of the beneficiaries, pledged they will put the skills and items to good use.
She expressed gratitude to the Hemang Lower Denkyira Constituency MP and the Ghanaian-German Centre for their support.
In attendance at the graduation ceremony were Mrs Faustina Ama Appiah who is the women’s organizer for the NPP in the Hemang Lower Denkyira Constituency, Abubakar Farouk who is the NPP constituency chairman, Ernestina Adu who works with the German Development Corporation (GIZ), and Mr Patrick Wilson, also of GIZ.
