The Pentecost Men’s Ministry (PEMEM) of the Winneba Area, in collaboration with McKeown Global Company Limited, has organised entrepreneurial skills and alternative livelihood training for members of the church in the area.
About 408 participants drawn from the Awutu, Senya, Winneba, Apam, and Odina Ogua zones took part in the five-day event, which was held from Monday, September 25, to Friday, September 29, 2023.
The Area PEMEM Leader, Pastor Augustine Norman Kantiampong, who also serves as the Winneba District Minister, stated that the rationale behind the training is to equip the members with employable skills for sustainable livelihoods.
According to him, this would help reduce the high rate of unemployment in the church and the nation as a whole.
The participants were taught various skills, including the production of brown sugar, organic fertilizer, “Azuma” soap, shower gel, shampoo & conditioner, bee farming, yogurt production, snail farming, bar soap making, catfish farming, weedicides, and biodigesters.
Some participants who spoke to PENTECOST NEWS at the sidelines of the event expressed appreciation to the PEMEM leadership for this laudable initiative.
