The programme has assisted them in overcoming obstacles to have the option to succeed in the technical and vocational fields.
Lack of kit, certification, and trendy skills are impediments to business success.
It is being carried out in collaboration with the ASEDA Foundation, a community-based organization. Beneficiary artisans from varied districts who’re about to graduate had their skills examined.
They have been examined in cookery, baking, dressmaking, tailoring, hairdressing, make-up, and inside design as a part of the home module.
Under the technical module, others have been examined on plumbing, carpentry, auto mechanics, general electrical, and aluminum fabrication.
Apart from the Ashanti Region, the mission supported artisans in three other areas this year, together with Greater Accra, the Central and Eastern areas, benefiting a complete of two,050 artisans.
According to Dr. Dominic Kwesi Eduah, Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, the mission’s objective is to remodel the casual sector right into a promising semi-formal sector, creating many alternatives for underprivileged artisans throughout the country.
“We’re looking at a target of 2,050 candidates for this year, this Region (Ashanti) is actually the last batch we are handling. The process is very simple – we want to move them from an formal sector to a Semi-formal sector,” he said.
