According to him, despite the enormity of the task at hand, he eagerly shared their journey, acknowledging the uphill battle yet to be fought.

He said: “Navigating through funding challenges, I proudly showcased YEA’s innovative approach, spearheading initiatives like Community Protection Assistants, Community Health Workers, and Prison Office Assistants. Collaborations with esteemed partners such as Afarinick, Inzag, insurance companies, and now Guinness Ghana Limited have bolstered our efforts towards sustainable youth employment.”

Among our triumphs, Kofi Baah Agyepong highlighted the impactful Business & Employment Assistance Programme (BEAP), which was set to provide salary support to over 10,000 businesses directly.
