Harnessing youth potentials locally can contribute to positive transformation in Africa while it also addresses migration pressures in origin and destination regions of the world. Farafina Institute together with its partner in the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana is currently running a one-year project in Ghana to showcase youth in established careers to encourage other young Ghanaians to harness potentials in Ghana for their careers. The project is funded by the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM).   Activities will be carried out in all ten regions of Ghana. These include:

  • shoot documentaries in each region in Ghana on youth with successful careers in Ghana
  • run ten regional workshops for youth on harnessing potentials in Ghana for careers, and
  • foster networking among youth in Ghana and between Ghanaian youth and peers in other African countries
