By Enock Akonnor

Officers of the NBU-YEC; an SOS Children’s Villages-Netherlands funded project will soon be rolling out a mobile training for persons who have undergone the Family Strengthening Programs (FSP) of the SOS Children’s Village-Ghana.

They will equip them with soft skills training as a way of adding up to the hard skills training they received through the program.

The intervention targets youth who after their completion of FSP have started their own business, those who are yet to start their business, those undergoing apprenticeship etc.


Ejisu municipality is the focus of the mobile training and beneficiaries live in communities including Ejisu, Onwe, Essienimpong, Kobease.

Roberta Aryeetey, NBU-YEC cordinator disclosed the above move in an interview with the media.

Her engagement with the press was staged on the sidelines of a day’s engagement which trainers of the NBU-YEC project had with the beneficiaries of the Family Strengthening programd.

At the meeting, the trainers used the occasion to identify which areas they (beneficiaries) need to be trained on.

Roberta Aryeetey told the press that they realized that a number of them have much to learn.

Among them are customer relations, business finance, business registration etc.

Detailing the media on the mobile training, she said that the plan is to actually take the service to the beneficiaries in their communities as the hub operates from Asokore Mampong Municipality.

“This time this activity is a mobile service where the trainers will go into the communities to give the training to them”.


SOS Children’s Villages Family Strengthening Programs work directly with families and communities to help them to effectively protect and care for their children, in cooperation with local authorities and in collaboration with other charities on the ground.

SOS Family Strengthening Programs target disadvantaged families to prevent crises that can in the worst case scenario lead to child abandonment. The programs offered enable parents to better care for their children through:

skills training
small business and micro enterprise initiatives
community development programs

Our Family Strengthening Programs ensure that children have access to essential services, support families to protect and care for their children. They also strengthen support systems for vulnerable children and their families within the community

SOS Children’s Villages offers families support in the short, medium and long-term. They do this in order to not only meet the more immediate needs of families and vulnerable children, but also to support families to become self-sufficient and to reach the long-term goal of the local community having the ability to support vulnerable families without the assistance of SOS Children’s Villages.
