The Chief Executive Officer of NEIP, John Kumah and CEO of YEA Justin Kodua Frimpong have paid working visit to some of the Training Centres
in the Ashanti Region in the ongoing Nationwide Entrepreneurship training .
It will be recalled that on Tuesday, January 21, 2020, NEIP entered into an agreement with the Youth Employment Agency to create more jobs for the youth in the country.
The collaboration will see NEIP offer various packages including entrepreneurship training, access to funding, to Ten Thousand (10,000) beneficiaries of the YEA modules aimed at equipping them to start their own businesses.
According to Kumah,
NEIP will continue to deliver on the vision of the President to create jobs for the Ghanaian youth and to ensure that they become business owners.
He noted that “the collaboration between NEIP and YEA is needed to ensure that when YEA beneficiaries are ready to exit their modules we have a strategy in place to prepare them to be on their own”.
YEA beneficiaries who successfully complete the training and have innovative business ideas will be eligible to receive funding from NEIP’s Presidential Business Support Fund.
