WHO WE ARE
WE ARE HERE TO BUILD CAPACITIES, INSPIRE ACTION AND CONNECT PEOPLE AND CAUSES
At Global Platform Ghana we support youth networks, movements, organisations and individuals who promote the agenda of progressive youth-led change.
We have developed an effective methodology for designing, carrying out and evaluating capacity building processes. All activities are based on our participatory and action-oriented learning principles:
SUPPORTING YOUTH-LED INITIATIVES
We support non-curricular initiatives bringing together youth to discuss, strategize, plan, carry out and evaluate various forms of youth-led activism.
The GPG team encourages young people to think freely, connect, and take collective action for social change. The Global Platform Ghana is an inspiring environment where you can meet experienced trainers and other inspiring people, share your ideas and plan activities and actions on local, national and global issues.
YOUNG URBAN WOMEN CENTER
The Young Urban Women Centre is a youth hub located in Accra and Tamale for young women to meet, build capacity, network and organise advocacy activities and trainings. It was initiated by ActionAid Ghana, and it is now managed by the representatives of the Young Urban Women’s Movement. In 2018 GP Ghana will partner with the YUW centre in Accra to develop and support youth-led initiatives. , check out the facebook page of the centre.
