AGSD-Gh launches USD3.8m project

The Association of Graduates in Skills Development-Ghana (AGSD-GH), has reiterated its commitment to industrialisation and data collection.

The group has launched a $3.8-million agricultural and data collection project to help create employment as well as provide technical and vocational skills training for its members and collect national data on unemployment.

The project, which receives funding from international investors, is also intended to develop a 40-acre land into a bio-diesel production plant, which will offer technical training and jobs to up to 5,000 people to help drive Ghana’s economy for self-sufficiency.

The project is expected to be executed by OB Nhyira Construction Company Limited, a wholly-owned Ghanaian construction company.

AGSD-GH, formerly known as the Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana (UGAG), was formed to assist undergraduates to be creative and take up opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge about the corporate world.

The association also creates employment opportunities for its members and works together with university administrators, the government and other stakeholders to create an enabling environment for Ghana’s education sector and job creation.

AGSD-Gh said the group believes “it is the responsibility of all to join in finding solutions to our national problems without leaving everything on the government.”
