“GPHA attaches a lot of importance to the national services as a scheme for mentorship. They have served and have been mentored. When they came to GPHA we have had about four separate programs for them, and they need to take them seriously as they get prepared for the job market,” she urged.

“We have had somebody take them through how they will put up their CVs and we also had entrepreneurship sessions for them. So these programs were done to build them up. So that, even when they go out and do not get jobs immediately, on their own they can start something meaningful,” she added.
