The Ladies’ Wing of the Tertiary Education Institutions Network, University of Cape Coast (TEIN-UCC), on Saturday, 7th March 2020 rolled out a historic ‘Yoghurt Preneur’ and pep talks program on the University of Cape Coast campus.
The program was for capacity building, purposely to equip ladies with the knowledge and skills to produce home-made yoghurt for family consumption and extensively for commercial bases.
Participants of the program expressed their happiness towards the opportunity TEIN-UCC has created for them to learn yoghurt making without paying anything.
A participant, Elizabeth Mensah said, “I really like the program and I have benefitted a lot from it. Learning how to produce yoghurt is not done anywhere in Ghana for free. For one to gain such skills, the fellow has to pay a significant amount of money before. TEIN-UCC has done it for us without taking a pesewa.”
During the pep talk delivered by Dr Nana Ama Browne Klutse on the topic, “Assertiveness”, she encouraged students to cultivate the habit of demanding their rights in a respectful and polite manner.
Dr Klutse further stressed the seemingly escalating apathy among students on the need to demand accountability and stewardship on political issues.
The program was attended and supported by many NDC’s bigwigs including; Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang (Former Education Minister), Dr Kwamena Minta Nyarko (a Senior Lecturer, UCC and the NDC parliamentary candidate for Cape Coast North Constituency), Dr Nana Ama Browne Klutse (a Senior Lecturer, UG and a UN Consultant) and many Central Regional and the Cape Coast North Constituency executives.
