A project initiated two years ago to empower youth in the coastal communities of Accra in employable skills has hit a snag due to lack of funds.

The project, an initiative of the United Christian Relief Services, UNICHRIST, an NGO, seeks to impart knowledge in soap making, batik tie and dye and dress making.

So far about 1,807 (one thousand eight hundred and seven) youth mainly girls have received apprenticeship training with individual service providers.

Speaking to GBC’s Radio Ghana the Project Coordinator, Bishop Emmanuel Pappoe, said efforts to get support from the District and Municipal Assemblies have proved futile.

He said he initiated the project following a survey by the GIMPA Gender Resource and Development Center which talked about high levels of teenage pregnancy along coastal communities of Accra and Ga South Municipality.

He said girls in Bukom, Chorkor and Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfrom have received training with a greater number on the waiting list. There is therefore the need for government, philanthropists and benevolent societies to come to the aid of his organisation.
