Accra, 24 November, 2021 / 8:45 pm (ACI Africa).
The Blessed Sacrament Parish in Ghana’s Catholic Archdiocese of Accra has launched its first ever trade show exhibition to address the issue of unemployment among the youth.
Organized on the 36th World Youth Day, the trade and exhibition show is expected to be a regular activity on the Parish’s calendar to encourage the youth in the church to create income generating businesses using technical and creative skills.
The parish priest of the Blessed Sacrament Parish said that the program organized on the Solemnity of Christ the King was aimed at instilling the spirit of entrepreneurship among the youth in view of helping the government address the issue of unemployment in the West African nation.
“The Christian community must see it as an obligation to augment the government’s efforts at finding solutions to the unemployment situation in the country”, Fr. Oteng Bawuah said in a Sunday, November 21 report.
He added that the program is set to help in grooming business growth through partnerships and networking among the youth.
