Mr Kumah and Mr Kodua interacting with the trainees

The Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Programme (NEIP), John Kumah and CEO of Youth Employment Agency (YEA) Justin Kodua Frimpong have paid a working visit to some NEIP Training Centres in the Ashanti Region. The centres have trainees undergoing training aimed at equipping them with entrepreneurship skills.

The NEIP on Tuesday, January 21 this year entered into an agreement with YEA to create jobs for the youth in the country.

The collaboration will see NEIP offers various packages, including entrepreneurship training, and access to funding to 10,000 beneficiaries of the YEA modules aimed at equipping them to start their own businesses.

Speaking to the media after the visit, Mr Kumah stated that NEIP will continue to deliver on the vision of the President to create jobs for the Ghanaian youth and to ensure that they become business owners.

He noted that “the collaboration between NEIP and YEA is needed to ensure that when YEA beneficiaries are ready to exit their modules we have a strategy in place to prepare them to be on their own”.

The beneficiaries who will successfully complete the training and have innovative business ideas will be eligible to receive funding from NEIP’s Presidential Business Support Fund.
