Stop Selling Livelihood Empowerment Items – MCE Warns PWD’s

The Adenta Municipal Chief Executive, Daniel Noi Adumuah, has warned persons with disabilities, against selling business start up items distributed to them or use them to decorate their rooms.

According to him, it is unfortunate that some PWD members sell out these items or place them in their rooms, defeating the rationale behind the initiative which is a established and sustainable livelihood.

He made the assertion when the Assembly presented various items worth thousands of Cedis to 25 PWDs after supporting several others in their education.

The items included; Corn milling machine, laptop computers, printing machines, polytanks, popcorn machines and refrigerators.

Mr. Adumuah who said the items were meant to empower the beneficiaries to improve their livelihoods also charged them to develop good customer relations in order expand and sustain their businesses.

The Adenta Municipal Social Welfare Coordinator, Divine Exorgbe who supervised the distribution revealed that the beneficiaries were all given items they requested for as stated in their application letters.

He noted that the social welfare committee will strictly monitor the beneficiaries and anyone who is found to have sold their items will be surcharge and further excluded from future disbursements.

Mr. Exorgbe who disclosed that the assembly has about four hundred PWDs on their data also hinted that the assembly will soon role out fish farming and other business modules for the members, saying that will commence soon after the next disbursement.

Assemblies across Ghana have decided to equip PWDs with equipment and business start ups which aims to provide long term livelihood to the members instead of physical cash given to them in the past which most of them misused.
