THE Youth Training and Partnership Employment Programme (YTEPP) is making 2,500 masks for distribution for “at-risk youth and other vulnerable groups in society.”
In a post on its Facebook, it noted that the cloth face masks is for distribution to non-government organisations with special focus on at-risk youth.
It stated that the production was being undertaken by graduates and tutors of the YTEPP’s Garment Production and Fashion Design Programmes.
The post noted. “This initiative is in response to Government’s strong recommendation that citizens venturing outdoors, should wear fabric face masks, in an effort to curtail the spread of Covid-19.
“YTEPP looks upon this venture as an opportunity to give back to our nation, at a time when our country is in need, and where we are all called upon to be our brother’s keeper.”
The distribution began on Monday.
