This was a CAFOD funded project, which was implemented in Kumasi. The main objective was to empower the youth by facilitating access to relevant development information for them to make informed decisions. The youth were exposed to various health, education, livelihood, gender, governance information in learning and sharing workshops and interactions with the relevant agencies.

 

They benefited from using the stepping stone study cycle’s methodologies and Meet Your Members of Parliament (MYMP) and Meet Your Aspiring Members of Parliament (MYAMP) programmes. In the following schools- Opoku Ware, Prempeh, St. Louis, Opoku Ware Girls vocational school, Prince of Peace and Yaa Asantewaa Girls, the project formed and left behind a vibrant Development Clubs (D-Clubs), which were each mentored by a teacher. Special events were organised as part of the learning and talent development for the youth. These included festivals (the youth used drama, choreography, music, poetry recitals to educate themselves and the larger society) and spelling B. Study tours and Picnics were also organised for the students to promote interactions and learning among schools.
