Based on this backdrop, Standard Chartered is imparting knowledge on disabled persons in Ghana which falls under the bank’s new community investment approach called ‘Futuremakers’ which aims to empower young people with employability, education and entrepreneurship opportunities.
Head, Corporate Affairs, Brand and Marketing, Asiedua Addae said s taff volunteers of the bank schooled the group on CV writing skills, interviewing skills and career planning skills.
The beneficiaries, she noted, have completed tertiary education and national service and have expressed interest in working in the formal sector.
“What they have expressed is that they want to be in the formal sector and so we are transferring the skills they need to help them be in the formal sector,” she stated.
