Shulammite Ofori-Danso’s free starter vocational training is changing lives in Ghana

Despite many official efforts, the ILO projected young unemployment in Ghana at 13.7 percent in 2018. This, among other things, is a powerful motivator for Shulammite Ofori-Danso, a lively young entrepreneur, to begin spending her resources in training unemployed young females in order to provide them with readily accessible vocational skills to produce money. Seated between two of her trainees who will graduate this month, Shulammite, affectionately known as ‘Lady Diamond’ by her colleagues, describes how she was inspired to establish the Diamond Institute of Events and Weddings in order to train as many young people as possible into the event management and services sector.

Lady Diamond claims that she has opened her school to people from all walks of life. “We provide free beginner instruction to support women’s empowerment.” – Shulammite’s viewpoint

She explained that the institution is open to Christians, Muslims, and individuals of all religious backgrounds, citing an instance where she volunteered to train five Muslim ladies at her school as a courtesy to the vice president’s wife, H.E Mrs Samira Bawumia, for free.

“I have the youths at heart and I feel bringing up a vocational institutions will make available great job opportunities for the young ones. It’s my way of empowering the youth” – she stated to Kelly Nii Lartey Mensah, a private digital media curator.

The Diamond Institute school opened in May 2019. On September 1, 2019, it received its first badge of trainees.

 “So we are few months old but trust me we are doing excellently. The students are happy and ready for the sector. I’m confident they will be employing many people soon” — Shulammite Ofori-Danso stated.

“We’re only a few months old, but trust me, we’re doing great.” The students are content and prepared to enter the industry. “I’m confident they’ll be hiring a lot of people soon,” Shulammite Ofori-Danso remarked.

“I don’t just give skills, I make sure they’re utilising whatever they learnt here. I do follow up and I counsel as a mother” — she urged.
