Fifty-seven youth from the Hohoe municipality and Jasikan district have undergone a five-day entrepreneurial skills training, organised by MYKS Evidence Enterprise, a private hospitality entity, at Lolobi Kumase, in the Hohoe munici-pality.
The participants were trained in beads designing, batik tie and die making and T- shirts printing.
The assembly member for Lolobi Huyeasem Electoral Area, in the municipality, Mr. David Kumabia, who organised the event, said the training was aimed at solving the unemployment problem facing the youth.
He said the Hohoe municipality and Jasikan district were endowed with natural resources, including clay, which could be used for the production of local products.
Mr. Kumabia asked parents to encourage their children to acquire vocational and technical skills, to establish their own business.
He urged the trainees to take the training seriously, and to apply the experiences acquire to create their own jobs.
Ms Faustina Ameworwor, executive director of MYKS Evidence Enterprise, said that “the youth of today must not look down on people who want to develop their’.
She urged the government to invest more in small and medium enterprises, to expand the economy. and appealed to the banks to grant ‘soft’ loans for people, who wanted to set up their own business.
Ms. Grace Buamah, a facilitator in beads designing, commended the trainees for participating in the programme.
