As part of the initiatives by STMA to support the youth through skills training, the Twin-Cities in Sustainable Partnership Project (TCSPP) has engaged 30 people for the second phase of training in improvised Green House Farming Technology. The meeting was to brief the trainees on plans put in place for this year’s Training. Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Isaac Aidoo the Project Co-ordinator stated that this year’s training is an extension of what was done last year and therefore requires full participation of all beneficiaries. The Governance and Social Accountability Officer at TCSPP Secretariat, Mr. Aziz Mohammed on his part urged the beneficiaries not to look at the financial rewards of the training but rather focus on the long-term benefits the programme have to improve their lives.
The Project Technical Advisor, Ms. Elizabeth Arthur also advised the trainees to think about partnership among themselves as they go through the training. She added that, with partnership,they stand the chance of receiving support and help each other to become large scale farmers. In her final words,she admonished participants to take the initiative implemented by TCSPP seriously so that the rate of unemployment can be curbed in the society.
