Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Member of Parliament for the Klottey-Korley constituency, Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings has donated 15 sewing machines to her constituents after they placed a request before her a while back.
The recipients had told the young and vibrant Member of Parliament that they needed the machines to aid them in their sewing businesses.
According to a report posted on Zanetor's official Facebook handle, the beneficiaries of the kind and timely gesture were from the Osu and Adabraka sectors of the constituency.
Pictures sighted by YEN.com.gh of the recipients indicate that they truly appreciated the gesture as many of them were seen beaming with gracious smiles.
After the donation, the MP who is the daughter of the former president of the Republic of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings, took the opportunity to share some words of wisdom with the recipients.
She urged them to put the machines to efficient use and also share the skills with other people so as to spread the impact.
Her words were:
“When we invest in women, by and large, the entire family benefits from it. Now that you have the machines, you must also do something good for somebody else. Identify some young people in your vicinity who are interested in sewing and mentor them.”
One of the recipients, Mary Akoto, thanked the MP on behalf of her colleagues saying:
“I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to the MP for this wonderful gesture, and I urge all constituents to continue to support her as she serves us. This sewing machine will help change my life for the best.”
Popular icons in Ghana have lately been the news for massive donations and sponsorships.
