Sissala east municipal to establish database of unemployed youth


Sissala East Municipal through the National Youth Authority has begun building a database of unemployed youth in the municipality to be able to identify and channel government employment intervention for youth. The Municipal Director of NYA Mr. Toffic Adams on Radford Masie Tuesday disclosed that unemployment rate among the youth in the Municipality is alarming and is a security issue in the country which is of great concern to authorities. However it is the database that will confirm the number of unemployed youth in the Municipality and enable them mobilize resources to build youth oriented initiatives and interventions to reduce youth unemployment. He therefore called on all unemployed young people in the Municipality to pick a form from the office of the National Youth Authority and fill it to keep their data for them to easily reach them when the need arises. The Authority is currently working with ten youth groups in some communities in the Municipality in which their demands on agriculture and technical, vocational training shall be addressed. Toffic Adams therefore encouraged the youth in various communities who needs help to develop their skills and potentials to form groups and inform the Authority about their existence for support.
