Presenting copies of the National Youth Policy and its implementation plan to UNESCO, Pius Hadzide said the two institutions must work together to realise the goals of the document

The CEO of the National Youth Authority (NYA), Pius Enam Hadzide, has said the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is a strategic partner whose contribution to executing Ghana’s implementation of the National Youth Policy is paramount.

Presenting copies of the policy and its implementation plan to UNESCO, Hadzide said the two institutions must work together to realise the goals of the document.

He said the authority is pleased to be partnering UNESCO in this regard and asked for strengthening of ties between the two institutions to efficiently work for the development of the Ghanaian youth.

He used the opportunity to educate the team at UNESCO on some projects by the authority such as STEP; which seeks to train both skilled and unskilled people for economic empowerment and the NYVP, which also places value on volunteerism, will increase employability skills among the youth whilst they contribute their quota to national development.

The CEO on behalf of the governing board and staff of NYA, thanked them for their unwavering commitment to the successful celebration of this year’s International Youth Day (IYD).

The Country director for UNESCO Abdourahamane Diallo commending the NYA for their efforts in youth development said his outfit has taken notice of the projects and programmes of the authority, and congratulated NYA for its handwork in bringing together such an august gathering of young people for IYD22.

He said the National Youth Policy is a blueprint which will guide them to identify areas of the policy in the various sectors to work on.

“We will also share the policy document with our global youth community whom we have constant dialogue with to facilitate the overall development of the youth,” he said.

He expressed interest in collaborating with the authority in the areas of education, youth advocacy, culture, STEM, digitisation and ICT.
