Miss Patience Amissah, President of the University of Education Winneba (UEW) Home Economics Students Association (HESA) has called on stakeholders to come on board to organise sensitisation and training programmes on wholesome practices at home.
She noted that Home Economics Literacy did not require only formal education before one could unleash his or her vocational skills and potentials for building handiworks and craftsmanship.
She said through seminars, apprenticeships and consultations, one could obtain employable skills and requisite knowledge for development.
Miss Amissah made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at a Beauty Pageant show the Association organised to choose “Miss HESA 2017“, in Winneba.
The programme was part of activities of the Association’s week celebration, on the theme: “Home Economics Literacy for a Healthy and Sustainable Lifestyle of the Ghanaian Family.”
Miss Kukua Addison a level 100 Student who won the contest took home One Electric Machine, bag of flowers and a certificate, Miss Emmanuella Kwakyekor, who placed second was given a saucepan and certificate.
Miss Okyere Perpetual, who took the third place, was given a blencher and certificate.
Miss Amissah underscored the need for the Ghanaians to develop keen interest in vocational skills as a useful instrument for development, through effective self-examination.
