Kumasi, Jan. 28, GNA –
Youth in zongo communities have been urged to accept apprenticeship training to
develop vocational and technical skills and competencies to make them
self-employed.

Alhaji Seidu Kucho,
the Vice President of the Voices of Zongo International, a zongo
development-oriented Non Governmental Organisation in Kumasi, said
apprenticeship, which combined classroom and on-the-job training, provided
opportunities for the youth to acquire skills required to perform specialised
jobs.

That, he said, was
crucial to making them independent to start their own businesses to cater for
themselves and their families.

Alhaji Kucho was
speaking at the 10th graduation ceremony of the Shamwil Fashion
Centre in Kumasi, where five girls passed out and received certificates in
dressmaking from the Ghana National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI).

He commended the
Shamwill Fashions for training the youth and called on others to emulate the
gesture.

He promised to support
the graduates with sewing machines to use as a start-up.
