AGSD-GH is partnering with Funding Ghana Graduates (FGG). This is a separate initiative to raise capital through a high profile crowd sourcing website. Funds will be applied to approved projects submitted by graduates and undergraduates. UGAG and FGG will work closely to develop networks of public and private donors for the FGG program, and for other youth programs.

AGSD-GH Stakeholders Meeting
Ghana is struggling with a high rate of youth unemployment and AGSD-GH sees it as a responsibility to help find solutions to this problem. We have therefore decided to embark on a stakeholder’s tour to get an opportunity to know the thoughts of the various stakeholders on the present situation, after which ideas can be shared to bring about a lasting and practical solution. At the end of this stakeholder tour, we will come out with a comprehensive report that we believe would offer more insight into the unemployment challenge in our beloved nation.
