Gov’t to launch Entrepreneurship Jobs for youth in mining regions

 The National Alternative Employment and Livelihoods Programme for Ille­gal Miners (NAELP) will, on November 28, launch an Entrepreneurship Jobs for Ghanaian youth in mining regions, dubbed: “E-Jobs4All”.

The initiative is expected to train 10,000 Ghanaian youth in mining regions in entre­preneurship and innovation over a period of five years.

This represents a significant partnership between the NAELP, Community and En­trepreneurial Development Initiative (CEDI Ghana), Dumin-Deshpande Queen’s Innova­tion Centre (DDQIC) at the Queen’s Universi­ty, Canada, and Leadogo Incorporated.

This was in a release issued by Dr Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor, the National Coordina­tor of NAELP, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Tuesday.

It said the training would equip young, innovative and entrepreneurial talents with the essential skills required to thrive in the world of entrepreneurship.

Through the E-Job4All, beneficiaries are expected to gain access to a wealth of op­portunities, including entrepreneurship and innovative training provided by the presti­gious Dunin-Deshpande Queen’s Innovation Centre.

Additionally, they would receive in­valuable advisory services from seasoned experts within the influential Leadogo Incor­porated Limited.

The E-Job4All addresses the NAELP’s mandate of promoting sustainable and resil­ient businesses within mining communities.

“By fostering the growth of existing busi­nesses, we create an environment that can absorb the talents and ambitions of unem­ployed youth, actively contributing to the development of their respective regions,” the release said. —GNA
