Nana Afrakoma Serwaah Kusi Obuadum, Queenmother of Asante Akim Agogo in the Ashanti Region, has appealed to the government and stakeholders for support to expand a vocational school project she has initiated for the community.

The school project is among several other development projects the Queenmother has single-handedly initiated to complement government efforts to improve the living standards of the citizens and reduce unemployment among the youth in the town.

She announced that Mr. Owusu Bempah of the Ghana Gas Company in collaboration had provided an Astro Turf pitch for the community, while she had also embarked upon the construction of a modern durbar ground.

Nana Afrakoma Serwaah Kusi Obuadum told media that her vision was to help the unemployed youth, especially the school dropouts and the less privileged with employable skills to enable them fend for themselves and their families.

According to her, she had already provided some of the basic equipment, including knitting machines, industrial machines, standing fans, television screen to be used by teachers, and ironing board worth millions of cedis for the start of the vocational school.

The Queenmother expressed worry over the unemployment rate in the country among the youth, hence the initiative to enhance employable skills to make the teeming youth self employed and to reduce social vices in the Agogo area, and hoped the government, through the District Assembly, Members of Parliament, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other stakeholders would support the infrastructural development of the area.
