Member of the Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly representing the Dagmweo Electoral Area, Issifu Mumuni says many young out-of-school girls and single mothers in the area will soon become empowered to be able to support themselves and their families.

According to Mr. Mumuni alias Old Major, an amount of GHc50,000.00 from LG Electronics Ghana will be used to start a textile weaving center in the community to train over 100 young women over a period of three years.

The center will also employ some weavers to train the trainees and also weave textiles for sale to sustain the project even after three years.

On Friday, March 19, 2021, LG Electronics Ghana handed over an amount of GHc50,000.00 to the Dagmweo Community and two other communities who emerged as winners of the LG Community Challenge.

A representative of LG Electronic Ghana, Thomas Moore Amoako who represented the Ghana/Ivory Coast branch manager at the awards ceremony said, LG Electronics is committed to giving back to customers and the communities they live in.

According to Mr. Amoako, about 150 communities presented very good proposals covering very key social issues, and the communities with the most compelling and sustainable proposals were selected for the award.

The LG Community Challenge is an initiative of the Korea Friends and Hope International (KFHI) and Community Chest of Korea and is sponsored by LG Electronic-Ghana.

The LG Community Challenge is about community leaders and members sharing their ideas on how to solve their community problems.

After the presentation of cash awards, the Korea Friends and Hope International (KFHI) and Joyful Africa Mission will continue to monitor the three community projects for two years to ensure that they use the money for the intended purpose.
