The participants acquired knowledge of making some range of products such as; Bar Soap, Mini Soap, Toilet Soap, Liquid Soap, Alata Samina, Azuma Samina, Kummadada among others.
During the launch of BLESS 1 SOAP MAKING ASSOCIATION the assembly member urged the participants to use the skills acquired as their profession to improve their standard of living and also as an additional income to support their families. She also stated that with this,it will remedy the unemployment rate in the community.
Hon. Comfort Yaa Darbo also appealed to the public especially NGOs, Corporate bodies and individuals to support the project financially to be able extend the training to some other groups.
