Kumasi — NANA GYASI AMOAKO Adabor II, Chief of Hwidiem in the Asante Agogo District of Ashanti, has appealed to the government through the District Assembly, as well as stakeholders and philanthropists to assist the community in revamping the only supposed technical school in the area.

It was intended to be a model technical and vocational School in the area to help train people, especially the youth, to give them employable skills for the job market and was approved by the then government but later collapsed.
According to Nana Adabor, Micro Niko, a financial institution in the Integrated Community Center for Employable Skills (ICCES), which has shown interest to assist in the rehabilitation of the project that has been abandoned for the past 25 years?
He said ICCES has given out an amount of GHÂÂ¢50.000.00 as a startup capital for the rehabilitation of the project by March 2013.
An 11-member committee has been appointed to ensure the completion of the project.
The chief assured that the community would provide free labour to assist the project and appealed to the general public especially the citizens to help revamp the facility to help give the up and coming youth employable skills in the job market as well as help reduce the Rural Urban migration for non-existent white colour jobs.
