We have so far drilled four (4) major boreholes for some deprived communities in the Greater Accra and Volta Region respectively. Our efforts to ensure that every child and young person have access to portable water remains our priority going into the future.

SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY FOR SOCIAL PROTECTION

We promote and advocate for social protection intervention programs through research to examine citizens’ (children, women and young people) level of awareness of selected social protection interventions and identified challenges affecting the implementation of those social inventions. The program is at strengthening citizens’ ability to hold state and corporate actors to account and make economic development work for the poor. This we do with children and young people welfare and protection at the center of our engagement.

INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAYS

Every year, Young Visionary Leaders Ghana, gathers young people from all over the country to observe the United Nations International Youth Days. Young people are center to our work and operation. In our quest to empower and create a common platform for all young people to advocate for their right and to hold policy makers accountable, we provide young people with the avenue to voice their concerns on this important day of the young people across the world. On the day, young people are giving the opportunity to share their own stories with their fellows and policy makers.
