MP Donates Start-Up Machines to Constituents to Boost TVET

The Deputy Health Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for Nsuta Kwamang Beposo Constituency, Hon. Adelaide Ntim Yaa Agyeiwaa, has donated start-up machines to over 100 people in the Nsuta Kwamang Beposo Constituency who have skills but lacked the equipment to work with.

Some senior high schools in the constituency that are doing the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programme were also beneficiaries of these machines. They included hairdryers, sewing machines, and barbering machines.

The MP said that government’s introduction of TVET will help reduce unemployment rate in the country. This policy will help equip the youth with hands-on skills to help them become self-employed.

In an interview with Opemsuo Radio’s parliamentary correspondent, Nana Kwaku Boffah, she said that, “Not everyone can get access to tertiary education, and that is why the government has introduced TVET to help the youth acquire skill training. In my Constituency, not all of them can afford it; that’s why I am supporting the youth with equipment to start up their own skilled businesses, and I believe they will make good use of it.”

Some beneficiaries also expressed appreciation to the Member of Parliament and promised to use the machines for their intended purposes.
