Eff-Ess Company Limited in partnership with Global Communities on 31st January 2019 held a passing out ceremony for some youths who have under gone training in entrepreneurship in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis of the Western Region.
The youths between the ages of 16-22 years and drawn from various suburbs of the metropolis including Takoradi, Butumagyebu and Sekondi were afforded the free vocation training under the ‘Yiedie’ program. The program is basically to train the youths and equip them with Entrepreneurial, Financial Literacy and Life Skills.
