The CEO of KBY fashion has taken upon himself a task of helping the youth in his hometown of Drobonso in the Sakyere Afram Plains District by training them to acquire skills in tailoring and seamstressing.
This was contained in a press statement which was copied Kessbenfm.com and below is the full statement:
AS part of my personal contribution to support development of society as a Fashion Designer by profession, I have resolved to train some unemployed youth in Drobonso and even beyond in the Sekyere Afram Plains District.
This is also a move to complement government’s efforts to improve the living conditions of the people, especially, the youth in relatively rural poor Sekyere Afram Plains in the Ashanti Region.
So far, out of a list of 30 names and upon constant followup, 24 of these youth in Drobonso, the district capital, have demonstrated seriousness to learn tailoring and seamstressing to acquire some entrepreneurial skills to earn the living.
I have weighed the magnitude of this training and would want to soon begin with these 24, hoping to increase the number when time permits.
However, it would be appreciated if government would like to partner KBY Fashion to develop these youth.
It is observed that Sekyere Afram Plains area is noted for its incidence of Teenage Pregnancy and most of these teenage mothers end up dropping out of school.
There are others too who are neither enrolling on school nor learning how to acquire entrepreneurship skills due to hunger and abject poverty in the area.
For these among other factors, it is anticipated that helping to train a sizable number of them would help build the situation for better future in the area since government alone cannot do it.
My doors are however, always opened for the support of all – either private or public partenrship could help to broaden my frontiers to absorb a large number of these youth.
