36 young women who recently graduated from tailoring and dressmaking courses were each gifted a sewing machine by Mathew Silas Amoah, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the Bolgatanga East constituency. The event, held on Saturday at Zuarungu in the Bolgatanga East District, was a beacon of hope and encouragement for these newly skilled artisans.

Ayimbila Abubakar Ateere, the constituency Communication Officer for the NPP, who spoke on behalf of Mr. Amoah, who was out of the region, emphasized that the donation underscores Mr. Amoah’s commitment to reducing poverty through youth empowerment. Mr. Ateere further revealed that Mr. Amoah plans to extend similar support to other artisans in the constituency, providing them with essential working tools to boost their trades.

“He is also targeting the weavers, the mechanics, and the hairdressers, and nobody would be left out. So, Mathew is somebody who is down to earth, and he has changed the face of politics in this constituency. He believes in empowering the people so that they would be self-sufficient to support their families,” he stated.

Albert Agana Akugre, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Bolgatanga East, commended the young politician for his efforts to complement the government’s initiatives in reducing youth unemployment. “This kind of support is crucial for our community and goes a long way in augmenting our efforts to tackle youth unemployment,” Akugre said.

Paul Akolgo, the chairman of the Ghana National Tailors and Dressmakers Association (GNTDA) for Bolgatanga East District, also praised Mr. Amoah for the gesture. He noted that since the association’s inception over a decade ago, this was the first time they had received such substantial support.

“This support comes at a critical time. Many of the machines acquired by apprentices at the start of their training are often not fit for use by the time they graduate. Mr. Amoah’s donation ensures that these young women can start their careers on a solid footing,” Akolgo remarked.

Akolgo Cynthia, one of the beneficiaries, shared her excitement. “With this sewing machine, I can now start my own business and support my family. This gesture has given us hope and the means to create a better future.”

The donation was not limited to graduates from Bolgatanga East alone. Apprentices from Talensi, who trained and graduated in Bolgatanga East, also received sewing machines, indicating the inclusive nature of Mathew Silas Amoah.
