Ghana: GYEEDA Supports 85 Trainees

Eighty-five trainees under the Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial Development Agency (GYEEDA) have each received sewing machines after undergoing a six-month apprenticeship.

The graduands, comprising 15 males and 70 females, were drawn from the various communities in the Sekyere East District, and taught sewing, embroidering and knitting.

The Regional Co-ordinator of GYEEDA, Omar Ibrahim, admonished the beneficiaries to put the machines and skills they had acquired to good use, to enable them generate income for themselves.

The District Chief Executive, Mr. Solomon Adjei-Mensah, assured the youth that the government was committed to ensuring that they acquire employable skills, hence the introduction of training sessions in all GYEEDA modules.
