Africa as a continent has been slow in economic growth. Haven’t surrendered to mediocrity; progress in economic growth is underway in some parts of the region. The need to empower stakeholders of the continent to provide quality health care, education, human development and strong economies has become necessary to address.

The confidence and willingness to that effect are what make the difference. The problem of Africa is lack of trajectory leaders in our various regions, lack of confidence in growing our economies, the fear of failure, culture imprisonment; lack of adequate moral growth and privation of problem-solving mentality.

Africa needs new set of stakeholders both young and old to understand economic growth in all spheres of our economies. It is my plea that all potentials in Africa will not die as we came to meet.

I, therefore, find it necessary to host an educational youth empowerment forum that will unleash the can-do spirit in student leaders, parents, and heads of institutions, government officials and stakeholders of our continent to equip them to be independent; excel as we hope for a greater Africa to be. It is on this background GENERATIONAL YOUTH DEVELOPMENT NETWORK (GYDN) GHANA was established.

On the 4th day of August 2015, GYDN was officially registered as an organization to embark on human capital development in Ghana. The organization is an educational forum where students in Ghana meet with career-oriented men and women in their communities, schools, and at various institutions to find lasting solutions toward achieving the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of local and regional government for national growth and inspire them for excellence.

This encourages learning, thoughtful debate and valuable ideas from each other in developing dreams into reality.
We are young people helping other people, ensuring availability of self-help, peer support and changing systems so that young people get the support they need with the respect and dignity they deserve.

Our aspiration is to attain the height of excellence in our services and also an opportunity to provide solutions and support to the world socio-economic challenges in finding solutions to achieve the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

What we do:
• Career guidance and holistic education
• Youth leadership empowerment
• Youth Entrepreneurship (promoting start-ups)
• Youth Health Management
• Youth Leadership & Advocacy Activities and Opportunities
• Networking and Promotion
