Volta region losing out on scholarship package for girls

By GNA

Ho, May 18, GNA- Volta Region is losing out on a four-year scholarship package meant to train 500 girls from “extreme poor households” in electrical, auto-electrical, masonry and carpentry among others countrywide.

The scholarships, under the Gender Responsive Skills and Community Development Project, tenable at the Community Development Training Institutes (CDTIs) are unavailable to girls at the WVTI at Sokode-Lokoe in the Volta region due to lack of requisite infrastructure.

“Because of this, girls from the Ho Municipality and adjoining districts have been sent to other institutions outside the region,” Mr Theodore Tandoh, Director of Community Development, said.

“It is therefore my passionate appeal to the various districts especially the Ho Municipal Assembly to support this institute to expand the facilities to benefit from the scholarship scheme by next academic year.”

Mr Tandoh made the appeal at the opening of a 200,000 dollar “Rebecca Agroh Information Communication Technology (ICT) Centre of Excellence”, provided by Dr Ken Kwaku of Ken Kwaku Group of Companies in honour of his late mother who was a headmistress of the WVTI at Sokode-Lokoe.
