A/R: Gov’t builds 2,000-capacity hostel for Kayayei

The Government of Ghana has, through a public-private partnership, built a hostel facility for itinerant female load carriers (Kayayei) in the Ashanti Region.

The 2,000-capacity hostel facility at Sepe-Buokrom has a Creche and a Reform and Skill Training Centre.

The Minister of Gender, Child and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, who, over the weekend visited the area to interact with the Kayayei on their welfare, also inspected and inaugurated the facility.

Ms Otiko also had a meeting with the leaders of the Kayayei in the region. The meeting was to brief the leaders about government’s commitment to ending the plight of Kayayei in the next five years.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP), led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, pledged during the 2016 elections to provide hostel facilities for Kayayei who sleep on the streets at the mercy of the weather.

The leaders of the Kayayei, who also inspected the hostel facility, pledged their full support to the government toward ending the Kayayei phenomenon.
