On the 25th of September, 2018, 13 Adolescent Girls and Young Women were given materials for business start-ups after six months of intensive training also funded by the project.
Those for hairdressing got generator sets, standing hair dryers, hand held dryers, ceramic rollers, 4 in one roller sets and hair wash basins while those for sewing got Sewing machines, weaving machines, sewing kits and scissors.
Some of the girls who received their start-up materials last year were placed in project-rented cluster shops where they can showcase their work and get their businesses running.
In attendance were the DG, State Agency for the Control of AIDS, Dr. Rose Nyambi; Permanent Secretary Ministry of Women Affairs, Ejom Freedom; and a representative from YESSO, Frances Edem.
They encouraged the beneficiaries to do well with what they have received and the beneficiaries also thanked the organization for the exercise.
