Sinapi Aba trains 280 youth in apprenticeship program in Bono Region

Two hundred and eighty young individuals in the Bono Region have successfully completed the Youth Apprenticeship Program (YAP) offered by Sinapi Aba, with the primary goal of enhancing livelihoods. This free three-year initiative is specifically designed to address youth unemployment in selected communities within the region. The financial institution's investment in this program is geared towards fostering community development through its entrepreneurship initiative.

In a statement, the organizers encouraged parents to motivate their children to participate in the training whenever it is conducted in their communities. The 280 graduates were counseled to bring innovation to their respective fields.

Ing. Dr. Kwadwo Damoah-Afari, the Sanaahene of the Dormaa Traditional area, commended the bank's investment, emphasizing that it provides the youth with the opportunity to establish their own businesses. He urged the beneficiaries to capitalize on this chance by being creative and acquiring new skills.

Several beneficiaries, including Damoah Michael, a Senior High School graduate who underwent masonry training, shared their success stories. Michael, who joined the program in 2020, proudly identified himself as a building engineer after three years of training. Another beneficiary, Badu Priscilla, expressed gratitude for the opportunity, stating that she learned sewing through the program and can now generate income on her own.
