Itinerant female load carriers (kayayei) will soon have a decent place to lay their heads as the government says it will start the construction of a 600-bed hostel for them in December this year.
Delivering the 2020 budget in Parliament on Wednesday, 13 November 2019, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta said: “Mr Speaker, I am happy to announce that preparations are now complete and the construction of the first 600-bed kayayei hostel will commence in Agbogbloshie next month to provide accommodation and skills training to these vulnerable young women”.
Apart from that, he said the government has put in place other social interventions for such vulnerable groups.
