Member of parliament for New Juaben South Constituency, Hon. Michael Okyere Baafi filling his promises made during his Aspiring state.
His motive to fight against social vices like Prostitution, Robbery etc. and encourage the enrollment in Vocational and Technical training to reduce the unemployment rate made him invest in the sector. He shared Machinery to the sector in his visit to the Senior High School in his Constituency (Pentecost Senior High School, New Juaben Senior High School and Oti Boateng Senior High School).
Check below for the full post on his social media handle after the work done.
Technical, Vocational education and its associated skills are key to our country’s economic development. With relevant employable skills, individuals can set up their own companies and organisations, making more job opportunities available for the unemployed.
Economically, times are shifting to stages of graduates not being employees only but becoming employers in the job market. Technical and Vocational education, therefore, provides an increase in the skill options available to the learner for effective survival in the economy. Beneficiaries will be self-employed and can produce goods that are of export quality thereby increasing our foreign earnings.
For this reason, I donated One Industrial Sewing Machine and Five hand sewing Machines each; to the Home Economics Department of; Pentecost Senior High School, New Juaben Senior High School and Oti Boateng Senior High School.
I believe that If the youth in my constituency are given training in technical and vocational education, it will create jobs. This will lead to a reduction in social vices such as robbery, stealing, prostitution, rape, drug addiction etc.
