The Global Aid for the Marginalized under the Ghana literacy entrepreneurial and industrialization program for persons with disabilities (PWDs) project in partnership with Center For Employment Of Persons With Disabilities have embarked on a sensitization program for people with disabilities.
The project which was launched in 2015 to train persons with disabilities in Basic English and Mathematics for business is aimed at making persons with disabilities self-sufficient and independent in order to prevent them from becoming a burden to society.
The program offers entrepreneurial and industrial training to PWDs with the requisite skills such as rubber cutting, wreath making, liquid soap making etc. Under this program, trainers would be called to give them training after which there would be persistent follow ups.
The Executive Director of Global Aid for the Marginalized, Francis Agyare Botchway assured them of a microfinancing support. “We will not train you and leave you like that. We are like a family now. We will give you capital in order to establish yourself in what you were trained in”.
“It is against this backdrop that we organized sensitization programmes for persons with disabilities in the streets of Accra to orient them on the life changing programme packaged for them,” Mr. Botchway stated.
He indicated that Global Aid for the Marginalized is a fully registered Non-Profit (charity) Organization headquartered in Ghana to reach the marginalized in Africa to build a better life.
“We embark upon poverty alleviation programmes which focus on reducing hardship in the marginalized communities of Ghana,” Mr. Botchway added.
