The “BossUp 100” is an initiative by Radio Personality Maxline Chelsy Sey, a staff of Global Media Alliance.
This project was launched at Duapa Werkspace to provide an intensive training in diverse fields under TVET to less privileged women in the Western Region.
Over the weekend the Boss Up 100 project saw the graduation of its first cohort.
In all, 20 young ladies were selected and trained in Garment Construction, Pattern Drafting, Drawing Illustration, Business Development and Fabric Waste Management out of which 15 successfully graduated. The said project was facilitated by Duapa Werkspace.
In an era of economic hardship and lack of employment opportunities, technically equipping the youth especially women and girls with requisite vocational and management skills can serve as a weapon for poverty reduction.
With Financial support by the Richard Addison Foundation, the BossUp 100 project aims to train more less privileged girls and women in the Region desiring for a change in their lives with vocational and technical skills coupled with business and financial management skills to aid in achieving the sustainable development goal of gender equality and empowering women and girls with disabilities and also financial inclusion.
The graduation ceremony saw the beneficiaries showcase their designs within 8 months of training and internship. The graduation ceremony took place at Hotel Messiah where their family members showed up to support them.
