The Rebecca Foundation with support from the KGL Foundation has graduated 68 women trained in bakery and soap making.
The training was part of the Rebecca Foundation’s Terema Initiative which seeks to equip women with various skills that can serve as a means of livelihood for these women.
The women were also presented with ovens, sugar, oil and other startup kits to help them immediately commercialize what they had learned.
Rebecca Foundation focuses on identifying and implementing initiatives that support the government’s efforts to improve lives, particularly those of women and children.
At the graduation ceremony in Accra on Wednesday, November 29, 2023, the First Lady and Executive Director of the Rebecca Foundation, Rebecca Akufo-Addo said, “The need to empower women as a means of improving livelihoods for families and communities remains core to the Foundation’s quest to champion the well-being of women and children.“
She expressed the hope that the support given the women will go a long way to improve their livelihoods and that of their immediate families and communities.
