The lajna Imaillah Ghana has began a nationwide Sewing Training Program for selected unskilled members across the country within the month of September 2021. So far, about 43 members from 21 zones have received sewing machines and an amount of money to facilitate the training for beneficiaries.
Some of these Zones held brief events to hand over the sewing machines to the beneficiaries for them to commence their apprentiship training at identified centres in their Zones. The organization (Lajna Imaillah Ghana) also paid the apprenticeship cost for these young girls to be trained as seamstresses.
The initiative forms part of the responsibility of the organization to ensure that its members are provided with both formal and informal education to enhance their livelihood options. To achieve this aim, the current Sadr (President of the association) in the person of Hajia Anisa Nasirudeen Iddrisu, spearheaded the Skills training program for young girls across the various zones in the country. The beneficiary zones so far include Abura, Mankessim, Yendi, Bedum, Kumasi, Sekyere, Takoradi, Tamale, Tema, Damango, Nkawkaw, Techiman, Upper West, Mangoase, Kasoa, Assin, Volta, Walewale, Nalergu, Obuasi and Akim Oda.
The selected beneficiaries expressed their joy and gratitude on the gesture by the Lajna Imaillah Ghana and Pray with hope to finish in good time, obtain a livelihood as seamstresses and to also assist in the training of other young girls Insha Allah.
The following were the reaction from Yendi zone. The Muallim (Missionary) from Yendi zone writes: Alhamdulillah the Yendi zonal Lajna Sadr and other members on behalf of the Sadr Lajna Imaillah Ghana, handed over two sewing machines to Fatima and Asana.
The Beneficiaries received the gesture with their parents at their apprenticeship shop right before their madam.
Fatima and Asana with joy expressed their gratitude to Allah and were also grateful to the Sadr Lajna Imaillah Ghana for her benevolence to them. They promised to take their studies serious and to take good care of the machines and the other items donated to them to ensure they yield fruitful results.
