Youth group urges support for young entrepreneurs
The Cape Coast Youth Development Association has appealed to politicians and stakeholders in the business community to support young entrepreneurs in the Cape Coast Metropolis for their businesses to grow.
The group said this at the launch of an award programme as part of activities to mark the 5th anniversary of the Association in Cape Coast.
The major objective of the Association is to seek the development needs of young entrepreneurs in Cape Coast in particular and the Central Region in general.
The Rev Asante Bordoh, a member of the group, said it was time for entrepreneurs in the Cape Coast Metropolis to be given the needed support to enhance development in the Region.
He said it was unfortunate that Cape Coast was not getting support as far as development was concerned though the Region has good educational institutions.
“We have a lot of educational institutions, we do not need education funds but we need a business fund that will help change the face of development here,” he said.
Mr. Gilbert Nuri-Teg, the Metropolitan Coordinating Director, said the Region was endowed with a lot of tourist sites and appealed to the youth to take advantage of the situation to go into the tourism industry.
He urged them to take their education very serious since education was the surest way of attaining the development that they were looking for in the Region.
Other activities lined-up for the week long celebration of the anniversary include clean-up exercise, health walk, educational lectures, quizzes, appeal for funds and an award ceremony to climax the celebration.
