Youth Harvest Foundation Ghana
Youth Harvest Foundation Ghana is a non-governmental organization (NGO) with its main office in the capital of the Upper-East region, Bolgatanga. It was founded in 2002 and since then has delivered many successful projects. The vision of the foundation is creating self-reliant and self-sufficient youth in healthy communities. Its mission is to identify unfulfilled needs of young people and to develop, implement and fund breakthrough solutions that have a lasting impact.
To achieve our vision Youth Harvest Foundation Ghana is working with a two-fold strategy. The first part of the strategy is engaging directly with young people to address their needs. Our longest running program is the adolescence, changes, choices and rights program (ACCR) which focuses on in-school youth as well as the apprenticeship-students. Within this project we aim to promote the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of young people by providing accurate information to them as well as supporting them in undertaking advocacy activities to stand up for their rights. (See Reproductive Health for more details on the program) Within our Securing Knowledge Into Lifelong Learning (SKILL) program we seek to provide opportunities for young people to build their personal skills and improve their career opportunities. (see Youth Skills for more details on the program)
The second part of the strategy focuses on working indirectly with parents in local communities to ensure that all children go to school. Known as the SUNUGA Eco-Fairtrade program, the strategy is to empower the parents economically through market led fair-trade farming and encourage them to support their children's education.
