The Manager of the Edwenase Rehabilitation Centre, Mr Modesto Ibrahim Ayiwole has called for assistance for the centre.
He tells rawgist.com in an interview that the Edwenase Rehabilitation Centre which caters for deaf, dumb, blind, the physically disabled and those with mental disorders lack learning materials, tools and equipment and need assistance urgently.
He appealed to Corporate Ghana as well as well meaning individuals to rush to the aid of the centre to enable it continue its functions smoothly.
Trade areas taught at the Centre include shoe making and leather works, hairdressing, tailoring and dressmaking and rural crafts.
He explains that there are currently 75 children-30 girls and 45 boys learning various trades at the Centre and adds that though training at the Centre is tentatively 3 years, one may spend an extended period of time based on his disability or learning ability.
The ages of inmates at the centre ranged from 15 to 40 years.
Mr Ayiwole explains to rawgist.com’s Bernard Buachi that the centre, on its own, engaged in self-sustaining ventures such as selling various forms of craftwork produced by the inmates including beads, needle work, soap etc.
