YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROJECT
This project is expected to communicate to all young people their self-worth, dignity, personal responsibility, standards of excellence and their contribution to the development of their communities, nation and the rest of the world. It will be carried out in public platforms like schools, communities, youth group meetings, youth events, TV, Radio, online, papers and any other platform that we deem appropriate. It will mainly be a speaking campaign and advocacy campaign. The current campaign being implemented under this project is called I Empower-Youth Empowerment Campaign (IE-YEC)
I EMPOWER-Youth Empowerment Campaign (IE-YEC) is a 2year social movement to reach out to over 100million young people around the world people with special focus on those in Ghana (10million) and Africa (350million) through seminars, keynotes, workshops, media discussions, TV and Radio programmes, books, CDs, online and social media activities. The campaign is meant to inspire dreams, transform lives and drive positive change in our youth. The campaign seeks to tackle the challenges facing the youth to ensure a better life for them all. To move more aggressively towards this direction, we need to challenge the systems around the world of the youth that does not allow their total development and build concrete structures to give the youth the right motivation to act on their dreams.
As said by Benjamin Franklin, “nothing is more important for public wealth than to form and train youth in wisdom and virtue”, we believe that this campaign will go a long way to help positively transform the fortunes and destinies of majority of young people in our world today.
We believe that, young people are empowered when they acknowledge that they have or can create choices in life, are aware of the implications of those choices, make informed decisions freely, take action based on those decisions and accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Empowering young people means creating and supporting the enabling conditions under which young people can act on their own behalf, and on their own terms, rather than at the direction of others.
“Resurrecting the spirit, power and hope of our youth for sustainable development”
