Vice President Bawumia commissions multi-purpose hostel facility and training centre for Kayayei

The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana and Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), H.E. Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has on Tuesday May 21 2024, commissioned a multi-purpose hostel facility and training centre for head potters (Kayayie) at Madina and Ashaiman, in Accra.

Dr. Bawumia noted that, “The commissioning of the ultra-modern residential facility and training centre, is in fulfillment of a promise I made to the head potters on behalf of government, when I visited their hub in Agbogbloshie, Accra, to greet them.” Adding that, “With government adding a training programme to the residential facility, we have moved beyond the promise of addressing their pressing needs, to also offering them transitional job pathways, to enhance their socio-economic status.”

The facilities he said, are in addition to facilities under construction in Kumasi and Techiman, which are expected to rapidly impact over 100,000 Kayayies and offer them a sustained livelihood.

Dr. Bawumia has expressed gratitude to the Ghana Enterprises Agency (GEA), National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP), Youth Employment Agency (YEA), Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET), Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund), Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), District Assemblies Common Fund (DACF), Ghana Gas, Ghana Health Service, and BOST, as well as the Father Campbell Foundation, for their collaborative efforts in making this possible.
