Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
18-year-old Sarah Kath, a Cameroonian native, is one of many young talents bringing exceptional qualities and talent to male-dominated fields.
Despite the challenges women in male active careers experience, Sarah Kath has resolved to become one of the few successful women in building and construction.
Kath revealed that the early days were challenging with stereotypes but she overcame by the encouragement and guidance of her well-experienced tutors.
She affirmed that women in male-dominated occupations face unique setbacks which include the inadequate accommodation of women’s exceptional physical, identity and work-life.
Nonetheless, she had to cope in order to continue on her career path.
The teenager emphasised that she feels very privileged to be found in the male-dominated field and has been working towards blazing a trail for generations to come.
She shared her joy and amazing one-year experience learning at the Tema Industrial Mission, under the National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI).
Kath perceives a bright future ahead of her and is highly motivated to finish her course here in Ghana.
She said her main drive is the fact that she wouldn’t have to struggle after school to get a job. Her determination to thrive in a male-dominated domain is admirable.
Kath has urged her female colleagues to join in as part of an effort to attract and motivate women who wish to be employed in historically male-dominated careers to step forward to help shatter barriers in those occupations.
National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI), under the leadership of Mrs. Mawusi Awuti Nudekor, is on an ambitious drive to rake in more females into male-dominated areas of work, as it champions TVET in Ghana.
