Delivering the future to our youth
The youth of Ghana occupy a special place in our hearts. As they leave childhood behind and venture out in the world to take their place in society, it is up to us to ensure that they start their journey with every advantage, able to grab opportunities presented to them and create their own.
We’ve dedicated several projects to the empowerment and upliftment of our youth over the past years. The needs of young people are diverse, and our areas of focus have reflected this. We have invested in tertiary education, naturally. Job creation is another priority: our Youth Entrepreneurial Agency is in the process of employing 120,000 young people in diverse positions across many industries, and our agricultural incentive program is bringing young people back to the land and farms – we now have 81,150 young farmers in the programme.
These are just some of the initiatives that are ongoing. Our young people have every reason to be optimistic. We understand what they need, and we will continue to deliver to them.
Our most vulnerable citizens are relying on us as government to provide for them. This is our responsibility and our privilege.
