*📰AC16: U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission Travels to Ashanti Region to Promote 🇺🇸USA-Ghana🇬🇭 Partnerships*
U.S. Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) Christopher J. Lamora travelled to the Ashanti Region from November 19-20 to promote partnerships on economic development, education, and good governance between the United States of America and the Republic of Ghana.
While in the Ashanti Region, DCM Lamora travelled to Ejura on November 19 to commission the Ejuraman Integrated Community Center for Employable Skills (ICCES) Training Center’s new classroom block, a U.S. Ambassador’s Special Self-Help project. In 2018, the U.S. Embassy awarded the center a grant of $11,000 to complete construction on a four-unit classroom block to provide vocational training to more than 250 students.
During the commissioning, DCM Lamora lauded the ICCES Training Center for their continued efforts saying, “We know that increasing access to vocational training is key to developing Ghana and creates a pathway to improving economic independence.” DCM Lamora also visited St. Monica’s College in Mampong, a former U.S. Ambassador’s Special Self-Help grant recipient. Through the Self-Help fund, St. Monica’s College completed furnishings for an Information and Communication Technology Center that provides internet access and digital literacy training to its students.
