Sunyani, Nov. 8, GNA – Mr Martin Obeng, the
Sunyani West District Chief Executive, has toured communities benefitting from
the Sustainable Livelihood and Transparent Local Authorities (SLATLA) Project
to familiarise himself with their activities.
The project, benefitting over 500 people, seeks to train them in mushroom growing and it is being jointly implemented by the Assembly and the ActionAid Ghana with funding from the European Commission.
It aims at promoting environmentally sustainable livelihoods and decent work for women, youth and Persons With Disabilities (PWDS) dependent on the informal economies and it seeks to improve transparency, accountability and revenue mobilisation of the Assembly.
Addressing the participants at separate locations, Mr Obeng urged them to take advantage of the project to obtain some occupational skills to be able to support themselves and their families.
The beneficiaries expressed their appreciation to the Assembly and the ActionAid for making the project a reality.
