Stakeholders in a joint discussion have charged the youth of Ghana to seriously embrace education especially skills development to transform their lives in the area of technology.
At a forum by Young Urban Women Movement (YUWM), a nongovernmental organization (NGO) and funded by Actionaid to climax the celebration of this year’s International Youth Day (IYD) at Amasaman, a suburb of Accra youth were also advised to see technology as an opportunity in education that would transform and improve their lives for a brighter future.
Speaking on the theme “Transforming Education in Ghana” Programs Coordinator at the National Youth Authority (NYA) in the Ga West Municipality, David Peterson, explained that the youth needs educational transformation through technology to enable them become entrepreneurs upon completion of education.
He said the NYA has targeted the education sector as an area that can lead to youth on the path of transformation to develop their ability and skillfully make them become entrepreneurs and bosses.
“The youth must seriously engage in skills development activities after completion of education which would mandate them to work on their own and become bosses in the future,” he indicated.
He urged the youth to change their mindset and embrace the fast growing technology approach in order to equally develop their capacity.
The Girl Child Coordinator at Ga West Municipality, Evelyn Dogbatse, lauded the effort made to transform education in both the rural and urban areas of the country.
She called on teachers to make appropriate use of the logistics provided.
