The National Pensions Regulatory Authority (NPRA) in collaboration with the Center for National Culture (CNC) has offered employable skills training for some women in the Bono Region to empower them economically.

At least 300 vulnerable women were trained in soap making, bead production, washing powder, liquid soap, and other detergents.

A statement issued and signed by Mr. Williams Ohene-Adjei, the Bono, Bono East, and Ahafo Region Manager of the NPRA said the training was held in Sunyani on March 8, 2024, to mark this year’s celebration of the International Women’s Day on the theme “invest in women; accelerate progress”

According to the statement made available to the media, Mrs. Effuah Gyimah, the Senior Manager of the NPRA represented Mrs. Drusilla Naa Yartekai Frimpong, the Director, Human Resources and Administration of the Authority.

Addressing the opening session of the training, Mrs. Gyimah highlighted the crucial role of women in accelerated national development, hence the need to empower them economically so they could also contribute towards the upkeep of their families.

“There is a need to identify and channel significant resources to empower vulnerable women to make them self-reliant, build their self-esteem, and inspire them to register and join pension schemes.

That is the surest way the nation could eliminate old age poverty among women,” Mrs. Gyimah stated and reiterated the need for women to show interest and plan for their retirement by joining pension schemes.

Mrs. Gyimah called for more opportunities to be created for women as ways of building their capacity and enhancing their economic prospects.

According to the statement, Mrs. Gyimah used the opportunity to interact with prospective retirees of the Ghana Education Service in the region. She applauded them for their hard work dedication, and selflessness in serving the nation.

Mrs. Gyimah also interacted with HR practitioners in the local government sector. She informed them about the new pension act and urged them to continually liaise with their trustees to provide up-to-date information on the contributions of employees.
