OUTSTANDING YOUTH PRIZE AWARDS
THE YOUTH IS THE GREATEST ASSET FOR OUR COUNTRY, GHANA.
Young people are a major human resource for development and key agents for social change, economic growth, and technological innovation.
As youth are increasingly demanding more just, equitable, and progressive opportunities and solutions in their societies, the need to address the multifaceted challenges faced by young people (such as access to education, health, employment, and gender equality) has become more pressing than ever.
THE BATTLEFIELD OF EFFECTIVE & GOOD GOVERNANCE LIES WITHIN THE YOUTH'S IDEAS & PRINCIPLES TODAY
The Millennium Excellence Foundation recognizes the important role of the youth in nation-building since they will become the future leaders of this country, Ghana. We are making greater efforts to engage youth in our negotiating and decision-making processes.
It is good to ensure that youth participation is inclusive, equitable, and gender-sensitive and therefore social, economic, and cultural barriers affecting young women must be removed. They should have equal access to education and vocational training to be properly equipped for full participation in society.
Outstanding young men and women in our society have demonstrated leadership within their communities in the fields of community social services, medicine, reading and writing, science, mentorship, mathematics, finance, and business entrepreneurship.
Future sustainable socio-economic development, job creation, incorruptible institutions, national peace, and harmony amongst others depends on how we engage our Youth today.
