The Global Aid for the marginalized under the Ghana literacy entrepreneurial and industrialization program for persons with disabilities (PWDs) project in partnership with Center For Employment Of Persons With Disabilities have embarked on a sensitization program for the people with disabilities.
This project was launched in 2015 to train persons with disabilities in Basic English and Mathematics for business and the program is aimed to make persons with disabilities self-sufficient and independent in order to wipe out the idea of them being economic burden to the society.
Another side of the program is entrepreneurial and industrial training where PWDs are given skills in various activities such as rubber cutting ,wreath making, liquid soap making etc. Under this program, trainers would be called to give them training after which there would be persistent follow ups.
Speaking to them, the Executive Director Francis Agyare Botchway assured them of a microfinancing support. “We will not train you and leave you like that. We are like a family now. We will give you capital in order to establish yourself in what you were trained in”.
It is against this backdrop that we organized sensitization programme for persons with disabilities in the streets of Accra to orient them on the life changing programme packaged for them.
Global Aid for the Marginalized is a fully registered Non-Profit (charity) Organization that is headquartered in Ghana to reach the marginalized in Africa to build a better life. We embark upon poverty alleviation programmes which focus on reducing hardship in the marginalized communities of Ghana.
