The youth who form the majority of the country’s population also constitute the engine of the nation. There are organizations, individuals and youth who are devoting time, energy and resources to making changes in their communities in our country today.
However most young people today are confronted with a myriad of challenges and there is no doubt that they have suffered a fundamental disconnect from their cultural heritage as a result of inadequate institutions to manage them and the absence of a deliberate coherent national policy to incorporate the contributions of the youth to national development. The real task of the future is devoting our energies in building and nurturing responsible youths who will be able to take up challenges and contribute meaningfully to the development of the country.
It is out of this passionate commitment, genuine devotion and dedication to the development of the youth that Youth Alliance for Development is established.
DESCRIPTION OF ORGANISATION
Youth Alliance for Development (YAD) is a Youth led-Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) which is Non Partisan and non Profit. Youth Alliance is registered under the Company’s Code of Ghana (Act 179) of 1963 with registered number (CGOO1862012) and has its head office in Obuasi in the Ashanti region. The foundation seeks to engage young people in good governance and inculcate in them the principle of ethical and responsible leadership. We seek to create a platform to confront the numerous challenges of the youth through the sharing of experiences, ideas, expertise and best practices through visits and interactions that will provide the basis for ending the cycle of hopelessness and poverty among the youth. When this is done, we believe the youth will be able to crawl out of their comfort zones and realize the fullness of what the world have for them.
