Formerly the Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana (UGAG), the Graduate Support Project (GSP) is to provide skills development and alternative opportunities for graduates and the youth in soap making, snail farming, and mushroom farming.
As part of this project, additional training will be provided for the participants in financial management and accounting, bookkeeping, branding and advertising, basic marketing principles, and social media marketing.
The entire project is expected to train over 5000 youth across the country. However, the pilot phase of the project begins on Thursday, February 3, 2022, at Kpeve in the Volta Region before moving to Accra on Thursday, February 10, 2022.
