A group of Ghanaian students will receive Ghana Cedis 100,000 ($22,500) as grant from an Accra-based non-governmental organisation (NGO), Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES), to implement development programmes that will drive social change in their communities.

The beneficiaries, who are students of University for Development Studies in Tamale Campus, are participants in Youth Leadership for Social Change project being implemented with the funding from Ford Foundation by YES in collaboration with the University for Development Studies and University of Cape Coast.

The 21-day project will end on Monday. In the course of the programme, fellows have been equipped with leadership skills to drive social change. The participants also received professional mentoring from selected faculty members and industry players. After the event, they are expected to demonstrate the knowledge and skills acquired in their communities.

The Project Manager, Eric Saforo, said: “The practical application of the skills, knowledge and understanding gained through the Youth Academy for Social Change is essential to ensuring that the fellows learn to generalise and apply what they have learned in other situations. Through this process, youth leaders would become more involved in their communities, and provide a real service.”

The fellows proposed innovative responses of social impact to some of the real problems facing communities. A grant award committee, comprising faculty members and experience development workers, is expected to facilitate processes in which groups of participants select their projects.

The committee would support and monitor the implementation of these projects and evaluate the group effectiveness in carrying out the initiatives. The students will receive technical support for a period of six months to lead the implementation of their group projects, including managing their activities, leveraging stakeholder involvement, networking opportunities, continuous learning and support with financial management and reporting, among others.

Soforo said: “YES-Ghana is a foremost youth development organisation with a vision of a world where every young person has a real chance to benefit from and participate in development processes at local, national and international levels. The organisation is working to promote policies and develop initiatives that will help youth succeed in becoming life-long learners, productive members of society, materially sufficient and self-respecting citizens.”

Such is possible in nigeria if only we had leaders who are not selfish and only cares about themselves.
