N/R: 'Democrat Ladies' trains over 100 women in soap production
'Democratic Ladies' an NDC women's wing based in Tamale Central constituency has organized a skill training program for women in Gumbihini, aimed at empowering them to be self-reliant.
In northern region for instance, most women assume the role of men as breadwinners without any form of support from their husbands whom by default are responsible to fend after the nuclear family.
Having realized this phenomenon in various marital homes in Northern Ghana as a burden to most household wives, the NDC women group commenced Liquid Soap Production Training Programme for over 100 women aimed at helping them earn a living for themselves and their respective families.
The president of 'Democrat Ladies' Osman Bintu tells Saganitvonline.com, their initiative forms part of NDC's agenda of empowering women towards election 2020 and beyond. She also added that the intention of the group is to extend the initiative to several other communities to benefit people especially women.
Angela Mahama the trainer of the soap production urged the women to attach much importance to the training given them and start some form of production on their own to improve their lives and that of their families.
Beneficiaries of the initiative could not hide their joy as they commended the group for their strides to empower them to support their families.
Meanwhile the ultimate goal for the Tamale based NDC women's wing is to bring back the NDC party in power and also make the Tamale Central seat as a reserve of the party.
