Youth in Asunafo South receive skill training

200 selected youth from various communities in the Asunafo district in the Ahafo region have been enrolled into apprenticeship and skills training programs.


Various skills such as dressmaking, hairdressing, electrical, tiling, carpentry and masonry among others were chosen.

In addition, machines and equipment to be used to acquire the training were given to them and their apprenticeship fees paid.


Addressing the gathering, the District Chief Executive for the area, Mr Frank Adusei Poku, admonished the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity and learn hard to acquire the needed skills for their future.


He further explained to them that the government takes technical education and skills training very seriously, which is why it has made it free under the Free SHS Policy.


“As an appointee of this administration, I have also made it my focus to enhance skills training  that’s why a TVET School is under construction at Kwapong, which when completed will augment what we are doing- providing the necessary skills for our youth’’, he said.


In attendance were the Ahafo regional minister, Mr George Boakye and the Sompahene of the area, Nana Yaw Boakye.

The regional minister advised the beneficiaries to make good use of the equipment to enhance their living conditions.
