The young people from six assemblies in the Volta Region namely: Afadzato South, Kpando Municipality, Hohoe Municipality, North Dayi District, South Dayi District as well as Nkwanta Districts and Ningo Prampram in the Greater Accra Region, are spending a minimum of one week each at the camp in Hohoe to acquire various skillsets outside the regular school curriculum.
The Nneka Youth Foundation, which has been organising the camp meeting for the past eight years, hopes 3,000 young people would benefit from the camp meeting this year when it comes to a close by the end of August.
Speaking in an interview, the Founder of Nneka Youth Foundation Cecilia Fiaka, explained that each week, new set of young people from the selected assemblies come to the camp for a period of one week.
She said the programme is exclusively targeted at children from deprived communities and aimed at giving such children the opportunity to dream big and skills to be able to achieve such great dreams.
She expressed gratitude to Indomie for supporting the programme, adding: “Indomie came in to support us at a time that no one was willing to sponsor us and for that we are extremely grateful to them.”
As part of the support, nutritious Indomie instant noodles are fed to all participants daily.
Events Manager at Indomie Agnes Botchway underscored the relevance of youth camp meetings explaining that the annual event organised by Nneka was particularly important because it gave opportunity to people from deprived communities who would never have had such an opportunity in their life time.
She urged the participants to make good use of the opportunity and set very high targets for themselves.
