Mr. Samuel Asenso Okyere, Assembly Man, hopeful for Bontorsu Electoral Area in Akim Hemang is sponsoring girls from the area to acquire skills in wig making, Bridal Makeups and making money online in their homes.
Mr Samuel Okyere said his aim was to ensure that the girls acquired skills which could land them jobs or make them self employed after completing their training.
He said he was saddened by the high rate of unemployment in the community and gave the assurance that he will ensure majority of young people acquire skills.
Mr Okyere said the next batch of the sponsorship would go to young men who want to acquire skills in automobile mechanic (fitting), tailoring and driving.
He said all the beneficiaries were those who completed Junior High and Senior High Schools and could not further their education due to financial difficulties and added that such categories of people should not be left to their fate.
Mr Okyere said he would look for more resources to enable more people to benefit from the programme. One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Asaah Christiana commended Mr Samuel Okyere and said the programme had come at the right time and added that they would complete the training to make them useful to society.
