C/R: Disabled Shoemaker Supports Needy In Nyankumasi Ahenkro

Considering the challenges he has faced as a disabled young man following his parent’s inability to give him the necessary education or trade, Mr. Eric Andoh a resident of Nyankumasi Ahenkro in the Central Region has been inspired to give hope to others who face similar challenges.

On Monday, October 4, 2021 Mr. Eric Andoh, CEO of Support For The Needy Foundation presented educational materials and undisclosed sum money to the God’s Glory Preparatory School at Assin Jakai in the Assin South District in the Central Region.

Speeding with www.Kofitutu.com, Mr. Eric Andoh said his organization was founded about three years ago with the aim to give both social and financial support to the needy especially school children whose parents cannot afford their education.

This, he noted, includes the less privileged and orphans who intend to learn employable skills and among others.

Mr. Andoh said as a disabled person who has suffered social neglect, he is able to appreciate the sufferings of such persons in society especially when one is not supported from infant hood.

He said since the establishment of the Foundation, the outfit has been able to offer free apprenticeship training to thirty young boys and girls in the areas.

The training includes dress making, decorations and soap making after which machines or seed monies are given to the graduated apprentices to start up their own small businesses.

According to him, the current challenge is funding support to expand his workshop which is currently being occupied by thirty apprentices.

The Headteacher of the school, Mr. Benard Sam (aka Shark) expressed his gratitude to Mr Andoh for the gesture indicating that the items have come at the right time
