Volta region has 7,000 NABCO beneficiaries
Dr Ibrahim Anyars, Chief Executive Officer of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) has said the Volta region has about 7,000 beneficiaries of NABCO out of a total 100,000 young people engaged in seven modules of the programme.
He said the Ho Municipality alone has 700 members, who were paid a stipend of GHC700.00 per month.
Dr Anyars said this at the Volta Regional Town Hall Meeting organised by the Ministry of Information.
He said the country spent some GHC70 Billion ($12 million) monthly on the beneficiaries.
Dr Anyars said a dream of transforming the country, develop and prepare the intellectual capacity of the graduates could be a guarantee for the country's development.
He said the Scheme aimed at improving productivity and building integrity in the future workforce of the country would offer each beneficiary $5,000 by the time the programme ended.
"I am proud to be part of this transformative programme fashioned by a forward-looking President," Dr. Anyars said.
