The three-day intensive skills training programme by the Foundation was a free service to ensure that it provides the youth of Bekwai with entrepreneurial and employable skills.

The participants were taken through the making of washing soap, floor cleaning detergent, parazone, shower gel, shampoo, conditioners, hair food, after wash, liquid soap, wig weaving, biodigester and beads making.

Lawyer Ralph Poku-Adusei, Founder and Executive Director of the Foundation, explained that the gesture was geared towards reducing unemployment in the area.

According to him, the vision of the organisation was to reduce unemployment in Bekwai and its surrounding communities.

Lawyer Ralph Poku-Adusei, who is also the managing partner at Trent Legal Amansie Chambers and Bekwai parliamentary candidate hopeful, challenged the youth of Bekwai, who are the direct beneficial  of the initiative, to take advantage of the opportunity to acquire new skills that would help them improve their standard of living through income generation.

He said the youth were his priority for the intervention, because they were the hope of the future and would take up leadership positions, hence, the need to empower them to compete on the global market.

He urged the youth of Bekwai to come together and change the status quo by adding value to themselves, and take their rightful place in the economic narrative of Ghana.

He stressed that skills acquired would be a legacy that could never be taken away. Other interventions by the Foundation include food donations, cash donations, renovations of office complex for the Ghana Ambulance Service, support for the Zongo and Muslim communities in Bekwai among others.
