A hundred students from Aboabo Kesse in the Ashanti region have been trained and supervised by Fab Hub on career guidance.

100 students from Aboabo Kesse Middle and High School in Atwima Kwanwoma District benefited from the three week session of Fab Hub Youth Camp.

“The training is necessary because we wanted the opportunity to engage students while they are at home exploring what they can do in the future. They have been exposed to different career opportunities through our mentorship sessions,” said Fabulous Youth Women Network founder Ama Duncan.
