Youth Alive, a Tamale-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) has provided about ¢70 million towards the training of seven females, who were hitherto roaming the streets of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region.


The NGO focuses on the training of street children.

Addressing the graduation ceremony at the Vocational Skills Development Centre of the Bolgatanga Centre for National Culture (CNC), Mr. Emmanuel Atongi Bugri, the Upper East Regional Director of CNC, said the CNC had a broader objective of directly tackling poverty, through interventions such as the provision of employable skills.

Already, Youth Alive has since April 2003, supported 88 street boys and girls in the Bolgatanga municipality to acquire skills training in carpentry, weaving, hairdressing, spraying, auto-mechanics, masonry, electricals, among others.

He said that the objective for which the CNC established the Vocational Skills Development Centre was to provide employable skills for the youth especially school dropouts.
