The Pentecost Social Services (PENTSOS), the social services wing of The Church of Pentecost, in collaboration with the Yendi Area of the church, has organised a 3-day residential skills training for members of the church in the Yendi Area.
This highly commendable event, which took place from 22nd to 24th April 2021 at the Yendi Central church auditorium, saw over 100 participants attending from all 28 districts of the Area.
In an address to open the training programme, the Area Head, Pastor Emmanuel Kojo Aidoo, expressed his appreciation to the PENTSOS Directorate for organising the event to equip the members in the Area. He admonished the participants to take the training seriously to improve their economic lives. He assured them of the church’s support for them to establish their businesses.
The participants acquired skills in the making of various pastries such as spring rolls, doughnuts, Chin-Chin, meat pie, ice cream, and yoghurt production.
The facilitators for the programme were Mrs. Lydia Ghanney from the Pentecost Vocational Training Institute, Gbawe-Accra, supported by Ms. Maame Sika from the PENTSOS Directorate.
Participants were supported with some items such as flour, sieves, saucepans, bottles of oil, rolling pins to help them practice and also establish their pastry businesses.
Certificates were also awarded to the participants.
