Nestlé Ghana Limited has collaborated with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to help 10 million young people have access to economic opportunities by 2030. This was contained in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by both parties on Monday, November 4, 2019.
The Managing Director of Nestlé Ghana Limited, Ms. Philomena Tan, mentioned that her outfit believes in creating shared value to the benefit of the society, thus, seeks to support the development of a talent pool that Nestle could recruit from in future.
In light of this, Ms. Tan announced through the formalized partnership, a minimum of twenty (20) students each from the Colleges of Engineering and Science, will get opportunities for practical skill development from Nestlé Ghana Limited that would help them apply knowledge to the benefit of industry and society.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kwasi Obiri-Danso, said that currently, identifying industries to offer practical exposure to the huge population of students has been a challenge. He was therefore delighted about Nestlé Ghana’s aim to partner KNUST. He believes that not only would the students gain industrial experiences but would also acquire innovative ideas to help expand Nestlé Ghana, among other.
