Minister Advises Trainers To Be Transparent, Guide Youth
Mr Anthony E. Amoah, Western Regional Minister has called on trainers to be transparent, fair, selfless and mentors for the youth.
He said trainers could achieve much success if they kept proper records, recorded their processes and procedures and adopted modern and effective managerial strategies.
Mr Amoah said these at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Ministry of Local Government, Environment and Rural Development and nine selected Learning Centres (LC) in the Western Region at Sekondi last Friday.
Thirty-one of the learning centres were identified in the region by the various district assemblies but only nine qualified. The LC are aimed at imparting technical skills involved in their operations to unemployed and underemployed youth.
The beneficiaries, who would be trained in grasscutter rearing, bread, cakes and pastries baking, animal husbandry, bee keeping, jewellery works, soap, powder and cream making, among others, are expected to establish similar centres when they complete their training.
Mr Amoah said the project forms part of the Community Based Rural Development (CBRDP) and is aimed at poverty reduction through the empowerment of rural communities in skills acquisition.
