North East St Elizabeth women involved in culinary training course
In an effort to create employment for women in North-East St. Elizabeth, thirty-seven women from the constituency have been enrolled in a culinary training course.
The course is a joint initiative between Member of Parliament for the constituency, Raymond Pryce; Heather Little-White and Associates; and the Sydney Pagon Agricultural High School.
Mr. Pryce told RJR News that the effort is part of a plan to develop self awareness and confidence in the women in his constituency.
He said that the course is geared towards providing them with skills for professional development.
Mr. Pryce added that this was the first of the many training opportunities that will be provided for his constituents in general.
He pointed out that at the end of the course, the participants will receive certificates which can be used as part collateral in securing loans for self-employment.
He said, in this regard, discussions are now underway with some small-business loans facilities.
