The Ho-Dome District of The Church of Pentecost has organised a day’s vocational training and workshop for the women in the church.
The training programme, which took place on December 20, 2020, at Dome Central Assembly, saw many young women taking part in the exercise to enable them to provide for their families.
A total of 70 persons which included non-members of the church participated in the workshop. They acquired skills in interior and exterior decorations, in addition to learning how to cook healthy and tasty meals.
According to Mrs Judith Viku, wife of the Ho-Dome District Minister, the trainees were taken through the preparation of a variety of dishes with easy-to-find and low-cost ingredients such as yam and sweet potato to prepare chips, fruit juice, among others.
Mrs Viku entreated the ladies to continue to value the use of local fruits and vegetables in cooking for a healthy living.
The facilitator, Mrs Epiphaniel Tamakloe, encouraged the participants to take advantage of the job creation opportunities and skills they had acquired to generate income to complement their incomes.
According to her, vocational training which includes the development of technical capacity, entrepreneurship, and business skills is demand-oriented and builds specific skills tailored to prospective employers’ needs which plays a key role in helping girls get jobs.
