Hohoe NBSSI holds first graduation for craftsmen and women

The National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) in collaboration with the Association of Small Scale Industries (ASSI) Hohoe, last Friday held its first graduation ceremony for craftsmen and women who undertook apprenticeship in entrepreneurship programme.
NBSSI and ASSI is aimed at equipping unemployed youths with skills in various vocational areas at no fee in the municipality and beyond to reduce unemployment.
According to the Deputy Executive Director of NBSSI, Mrs. Annan Himpson, apprenticeship to entrepreneurship programme started from Hohoe and called other stakeholders to support it.
The event saw the passing out of eight apprentices in baking and confectionary. Each of the graduates was supported with baking ovens and other modern baking equipment as a start-up in boosting their business.
The Queenmother of Alavanyo Wudidi, Mama Amakpui ll appreciated the good course and urged graduates to build up on the skills to curb poverty in the municipality.
Mama Amakpui also cautioned beneficiaries not to sell or turn their baking ovens into wardrobes, but rather put them to good use.
ASSI acknowledged the MCE of Hohoe Municipality, Hon. Teddy Ofori for his efforts that saw the sponsors bringing in the equipment and called on the assembly to provide them with an office.
In response to the request, Mr. Andrew Teddy Ofori pledged to offer additional support for the programme as it is in line with the government’s policy of job creation, and assured them of the provision of office accommodation.
Mr. Ofori also encouraged other unemployed youth to participate in the programme, assuring them of more benefits in the future.
