Georgetown, Guyana: The Labour Ministry of the Republic of Guyana, in collaboration with the Board of Industrial Training, shared a congratulatory post and praised Dionne Stoll – a citizen of the country. The post, informing about Stoll, stated, “Following the lead from her brother, Dionne Stoll was able to realize her goal of receiving a certification in heavy-duty equipment operation through the Board of Industrial Training.”

As per the update, she remarked that this achievement enhances her abilities and expertise as an engineering student at the University of Guyana. “I am just happy for myself because this certification, here, is an additional ability in my field of engineering, and I see it as a method to extend my employment options in the working society,” Stoll remarked.

Additionally, it outlined that for this very reason, she encourages people, particularly women, to take advantage of the government’s free hard-skill program in order to empower themselves and enhance their livelihoods in order to contribute to the growth of the country.

“I witnessed the same amount of ladies as guys taking training in this particular program, and it brought tears to my eyes because that indicates how far we, as women, have come to be a part of a male-dominated profession. I also hope that other ladies will make us proud,” she said.

While concluding the post, the ministry informed that Stoll thanked the agency for providing her with the opportunity to enhance her knowledge and abilities in order to help her finish her university studies.

Earlier, Joseph Hamilton, Minister of Labour, met with the Board of Industrial Training Region Seven Technical Officer Joseph Bharrat and trainers to discuss how to effectively provide skills training to interested residents.

The post by the Labour Ministry informed that this step, he said, is consistent with the PPP/C Administration’s push to provide its citizens with the knowledge as well as skills they need to be employable. Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Board of Industrial Training, Saskia Eastman-Onwuzirike, Senior Technical Officer Leon Greaves, and others were also present at the meeting.
