One hundred women in the Bongo constituency have undergone skills training in soap-making organized by Diana Aduko Aburiya Asuure, the NPP parliamentary candidate for the constituency. The free skills training was an initiative toward women’s empowerment and economic self-sufficiency. The training aimed to equip participants with practical skills in producing various types of soap, including liquid and bar soap.

Speaking to the media, Madam Asuure emphasized the importance of women’s empowerment in driving economic growth and development within the constituency. “Bongo is one of the poorest districts that we have in the region, and as such, it is important for us to identify the things that are making the constituency poor. So, after a needs assessment, I decided to organize this skills program so that the women would be able to utilize the knowledge gained to generate some income for themselves and their families,” she stated.

Aside from the free training that comes with feeding, she said the soap produced would be distributed to the women for them to sell and raise funds to establish themselves. Madam Asuure said even though she is the NPP parliamentary candidate for the Bongo constituency, the 100 women who benefited from the training were drawn from all corners of the constituency, and some belong to other political parties such as the NDC, CPP, PNC, and PPP. “My interest is to empower women in the constituency, but not a section of women,” she declared.

A beneficiary of the training, Ms. Aduure Cynthia from the Gowrie community, hitherto the training, was mobilizing funds to enroll for the skills. “I was bargaining for a moderate price to enroll in the soap-making process, but now, I am happy that Madam Diana has made it possible for us to be trained for free.”

Atindaana Margarete from the Anafobisi community was planning to leave the community to look for menial jobs in the southern parts of the country until the opportunity for her to join the training came. “After the training, I know I will have a job to do,” she said.

The NPP Women Organizer for the Bongo constituency, Atiah Veronica, commended the party’s parliamentary candidate for the initiative, which goes to reduce poverty in the Bongo District. She expressed optimism that the women would be able to properly utilize the opportunity to create jobs for themselves to enable them to pay their wards’ school fees and support the family. The training program included hands-on sessions where participants learned about the different ingredients required for making various types of soap, including liquid and bar soap.
