Ghana YMCA collaborated with Global Communities

Ghana YMCA collaborated with Global Communities (http://www.globalcommuinities.org/) on the Youth Inclusive Entrepreneurial Development Initiative for Employment (YIEDIE) project, which came to an end as trainees graduated on the 1st December, 2016 at the YMCA forecourt. The youth who were selected underwent their training session from June 2016 to November 2016.

YMCA mobilized a total of 420 youths between the ages of 17 – 24 years. These youth were thoroughly screened according to the criteria set by the team of experts from Global Communities Ghana. A total of 304 youth, made up of 277 males and 27 females, were shortlisted for the training after the selection process. Out of the sixteen (16) trade areas, YMCA enrolled youth for training in twelve (12) trade areas namely: Aluminum Fabrication, Metal Fabrication, Interior Decoration, Machine Operation, Masonry, Steel Bending, Carpentry, Draftsmanship, Electrical Installation, POP and Tiling.

During the six months of training, the Young Men’s Christian Association Technical Training Centre (YMCA – TTC) monitored the training of these youths at their workshops on weekly basis and also trained them in Entrepreneurial and Financial Literacy so that they can establish and progress in their chosen career.

The graduation ceremony was graced by the presence of Mrs. Kafui Vera Mills-Odoi (Project Director of YIEDIE), Mr. Kwabena Nketia Addae (Executive Director of Ghana YMCA), Mr. Godwin Adu (Principal of YMCA TTC and Project Officer), Mr. Stephen Asomani (NVTI Regional Coordinator, Testing Division, Greater Accra), and Mr. Owusu Ansah (Private Contractor and Businessman).


The Principal of the Ghana YMCA – TTC Mr. Godwin Addu advised graduates not to consider technical and vocational education as an area reserved for second class people, and said policy makers and institutions should invest more in technical training to make the youths of this country more productive.

As the Executive Director of Ghana YMCA, Mr. Kwabena Nketia Addae, told the youth “make sure that you go out there to work hard because you can be key players in Ghana as our nation takes off in a development phase”.

Mr. Owusu Ansah, the chairman of the programme, Kafui Vera Odoi-Mills, Mr. Kwabena Nketia Addae and Mr. Godwin Adu all congratulated the youth and encouraged them not to end their training after the programme but to pursue further in their fields of choice. They also encouraged the youth to register with the Artisans Association of Ghana (AAG) (http:artisansghana.org/) and African Aurora Business Network (AABN) (http://www.aabn.org.gh/) to enable them gain more training and insight in the construction sector which will help them in their various fields.

All 304 youth were awarded certificates of training by the Ghana YMCA Technical Training Centre. Those who took part in and passed the NVTI Exams will also be awarded NVTI Proficiency Certificates. Master craftsmen who took the youth through the training were also awarded certificates from the Ghana YMCA.

YIEDIE is creating economic opportunities for youth ages 17-24 in Ghana’s construction sector by training young women and men in technical construction skills and helping youth to grow and start small businesses. It is also increasing collaboration and support amongst construction sector stakeholders to improve their enabling environment.

    That’s the best way our country Ghana can develop rapidly with less unemployment. Keep the good work done. And I suggest YMCA have a deep discussion with the current government by sending more young men and women for training at the YMCA by means of sponsering their training. God bless YMCA coordinators
