Kaieteur News – February 20, 2007

Twenty five (25) young girls between the ages of 15 and 19 will receive ‘Water, Sanitation and Minor Plumbing Repairs at the Guyana Industrial Training Centre (GITC) as part of a Gender Empowerment Training Programme hosted by four key organisations.

The Pan American Health Organisation/ World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labour Human Services and Social Security will launch the training in the Auditorium of the Guyana Industrial Training Centre (GITC) on Woolford Avenue and Albert Street tomorrow.

This partnership between these agencies was established to provide training to the young girls since the UN Country team, recognises that there are a significant number of female single-parent households in Guyana , and seeks through this initiative to build the capacity of these families by providing training in the non-traditional skill of Plumbing.

The Course commences on Friday, March 2 and will conclude on the Monday, May 5.
