Tamale, Nov 30, GNA – The Parliamentary Select Committee on Youth and Sports has formally pledged its support for the Youth Empowerment for Life’s (YEFL-Ghana) Youth Financing Agenda to advocate adequate funding for the National Youth Policy.

This was during a closed-door meeting held at the Parliament House, where a delegation from YEFL-Ghana and a representative from the Youth Policy Champions, engaged Members of the Committee to discuss the outcome of YEFL-Ghana’s research on youth financing.

This was in a statement issued by YEFL-Ghana signed by Mr Alhassan Abdul Ganiyu, Technical Advisor for Youth, Advocacy, and Gender at YEFL-Ghana, and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Tamale on Thursday.

The statement said, « Funded by The Empowerment for Life Programme, YEFL-Ghana conducted extensive research on youth financing as part of its broader ‘Fund the Youth Policy’ advocacy campaign. »

It said the focus of the presentation was on identifying gaps in the utilisation and disbursement of funds from the District Assemblies Common Fund to the NYA.

The statement said, « During the meeting, Mr Kwaku Agyenim-Boateng, Chairman of the Committee, and Mr Kwabena Mensah Woyome, Ranking Member on the Committee, expressed their sincere appreciation for the initiative and applauded YEFL-Ghana’s dedicated efforts in championing youth development. »

It said the Committee pledged to closely examine the youth financing strategy, cross-verify figures from the District Assemblies Common Fund, and scrutinise projects undertaken by the NYA in collaboration with YEFL-Ghana.

It added that the Committee recommended that YEFL-Ghana and the youth community should follow up on the NYA’s construction initiatives for validation purposes and engaging an expert to analyse the youth resource centers.

The statement said, « This collaborative effort signifies a pivotal step towards advancing youth empowerment and ensuring effective allocation of resources for the betterment of Ghana’s youth. »
