Yendi MCE presents 35 sewing machines to Apprentices


Alhaji Hammed Abubakar Yussuf, Yendi Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) has presented 35 sewing machines on behalf of Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to four men and 31 women at Yendi in the Northern Region.
That will help them to acquire skills and reduce unemployment in the Municipality.

Alhaji Hammed said in the past, Ghana had University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, and University of Education, Winneba, but now there were more than 100 Universities in the country turning out thousands of graduates who were unemployed.

He said it was important for the youth to venture into skills training to become self-reliant.

He said the sewing machines were funded by Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and advised the beneficiaries to form groups when they pass out for YOUSTART to grant them loans as their capital to start their work to make a living and also train others.

Alhaji Hammed said they needed business men and women in the Municipality who will be self-employed.

He said the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development would provide them with the necessary accessories needed for the machines.

Mr. Salifu Ebenezar Adams Regional Training Coordinator of Ghana National Tailors and Dressmakers Association on behalf of the beneficiaries thanked the donor for the kind gestures and appealed to Non-Government Organizations (NGO) to also support the youth to acquire vocational skills.

Mr. Salifu said in Yendi Municipality, the Ghana National Tailors and Dressmakers Association, Professional Hair Dressers Association, Weaver Groups, Carpenters, Electricians, Mechanics, Blacksmiths amongst others were training the youth in employable skills, but when they pass out the capital to establish their own business was the problem and called for support for them.
