A carpenter based in the Upper East Region, Belinda Atule Azubire, has encouraged her colleagues in the region to go beyond complaints about the absence of jobs for the youth and seek to build wealth through skilled labor.

Ms. Azubire made these comments when she spoke to Humul Khrusum Tahiru on Equal Voices, a program created by A1 Radio to further conversation that supports the creation of a society that is fair and responsive to the needs of both genders.

Ms. Azubire explained that she had been able to fund her education because of the work she does as a carpenter.

“There is big money in carpentry. You don’t have to wait until the month ends before you go and pick your salary. This is where I got money to pay my school fees, and I am proud to say this,” she said.

Meanwhile, skilled tradeswomen in the Upper East Region have expressed worry over the constant discouragement they receive from the public.

A mason, Joyce Nyaaba, speaking on A1 Radio’s Equal Voice Program explained that as a mason, she constantly has to deal with the public, prospective clients undermining her capabilities and denying her opportunities she deserves.

She recounted an experience in Navrongo where she had to fight back tears, carry out her duties as a mason, even when the client constantly doubted her abilities.

“My boss asked me to go to Navrongo and do a job for one lady. When I got there, the woman asked me, ‘What can you do?’ I responded by asking her to tell me what she asked my boss to ask me to come do. There were some men there who said they would give me my transport fare, so I could return to Bolga.”
