The Sunyani Youth Development Association(SYDA) in conjunction with Initiative Black and White (IBW), a Germany and Ghana based non governmental organization has sensitized people of Nkrankrom, a suburb of Sunyani, near Abesim, about the hazards of illegal migration.
The event, held last Sunday, was organized by SYDA and IBW and facilitated by the Migration Information Center (MIC) of the Ghana Immigration Service in Sunyani.
This was to educate the community on the need to take local job creation opportunities serious and avoid taking deadly risks of travelling on the deserts through Libya to Europe for greener pastures.
It was attended by more than 300 members of the community, comprising chiefs, family heads, young men and women as well as children.
Mrs. Faustina Kandoh, a trader, in her submission highlighted the need for African governments to make entrepreneurship skills and other job opportunities available for the youth.
