The Executive Director of International Needs Ghana’s Center for Empowerment and Enterprise Development (CEED), Mr. Cromwell Awadey, has urged its 2022 graduands to take advantage of the improved policy environment for TVET in Ghana and the deep penetration of internet coverage in their areas to advance their businesses.
He made this known while addressing the maiden graduation of over 80 girls who have received training from the Centre in Hospitality, Cosmetology and Fashion at Adidome in the Central Tongu District of the Volta Region.
According to him, they are ready for the job market at a time when the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has reported that, the world is facing youth unemployment crisis.
”The International Labour Organization has reported that the world is facing youth unemployment crisis. This crisis, according to the ILO, spares no region. You are entering the labour market at a time of significant and multiple transformations in the global economy and in technology. However, in your case, CEED has prepared you to be motivated by godly values, justice, rights and a sense of purpose. I am therefore confident that you are ready to occupy spaces that offer you the means and opportunity for meaningful participation in the businesses of your choice.
Take advantage of the improved policy environment for TVET in Ghana and the deep penetration of internet coverage in your areas to advance your businesses,” Mr. Awadey said.
He also urged them to prepare for the challenges ahead.
”I am pretty sure you won’t naively expect smooth sailing in the life journey ahead of you. Disappointments, mistakes and even failures all come as part of a package of growing wise, sustaining your enterprises and remaining very successful. So, be prepared for them, stay strong and committed and above all depend on God for a successful business career,” Mr. Awadey remarked.
The CEED, formerly known as International Needs Vocational Training Centre (INVTC) is a private, technical/vocational and entrepreneurial training institute established in 1991 by International Needs Ghana (INGH), a Christian, non-governmental and development organization.
The CEED has the mission and vision of empowering young people through skilled training to be economically and socially independent, secure and empowered to enable them contribute to the development of society.
For many years, International Needs Ghana has made great strides in reaching many communities in Ghana with various developmental projects, bringing hope to many individuals and families by providing skills and empowering the most vulnerable to make the most of the little they have.
The Northbrook Church and Pattinson Park Church, both in the USA are the funding partners of the programme.
