NPP Women organiser for Ejisu constituency Madam Vida Adjei has commenced a free vocational skills training for residents in the area.
The duration is 7 days and will cover courses including making of washing powder, pastries, liquid soap, hair conditioner, shampoo, parazone, shower gel, among others.
Implementation of the initiative is done through a collaboration with ASEDA Foundation with funding support from the member of Parliament for the area Lawyer John Kumah.
First batch of trainees running a little over 150 turned up for the launch of program on Saturday 20th May 2023.
Present at the event were the MCE Hon Samuel Oduro Frimpong, 2nd Vice Chairman Lawyer Kwabena Boateng, CEO for ASEDA Foundation Diana Adjei among others.
Addressing the trainees, the MCE who spoke on behalf of the Member of Parliament Samuel Oduro Frimpong charged them to make good use of whatever lesson they will receive and utilize it effectively when they start a career.
Acquiring a skill in vocation he underlined will help them start their own business, make money for themselves and their families and ultimately make them financially independent.
Madam Vida Adjei who is the initiator of the training said the initiative is aimed at empowering residents economically as they start their own business with the skills acquired through the training.
She mentioned that the training is programmed to cover every resident within the constituency who is ready to learn a skill for a living.
She urged the trainees to take the training serious and try as much as possible to monitize the sklls they acquire after graduation.
