CEO of The Community Hospitals Group (TCH), Alexander Akwasi Aqcuah, has urged jobless youth to venture into income generating activities rather than wait on government to provide them with jobs.
It is better for the youth to start things on their own while the government supports them with needed incentives to help them grow their businesses, Mr. Acquah advised.
The entrepreneur made the statement at beads training workshop for women at Akyem Aboabo in the Birim North Municipal Assembly of the Eastern Region. The training was jointly put together the Community Hospitals Group and Doctors Act, an NGO.
Mr. Acquah challenged the beneficiaries to make very good use of skills acquired through the beads making training in order for them to support their families.
The founder of Doctors Act, Dr Ofosuhene Debrah, also appealed to the government to set up a beads producing factory to meet local demands instead of current development where people import the product from China and other countries.
The Women in Akyem Aboabo also appealed for financial support to enable them start the beads business on a large scale and improve their living conditions.
