Exactly a week today, our President; Mr. Awotunde Awosika, honoured an invitation to attend the inauguration of the 3rd Parliament of Kwame Nkrumah Hall, of the University of Cape Coast.

In his speech on the floor, he mentioned how students' parliament helps to groom the youth and to grow their leadership potentials. He spoke about the role of students' Parliament in enhancing student governance in the hall.

He ended by expressing hope that, the training which he and the team gave members since last year, would help in grooming leaders and future Parliamentarians in the country.

Last academic year, the management of the hall and the JCRC wrote to Poimen Ghana, to provide consultancy and training, for the reestablishment of Students' Parliament of the Hall.
Tomorrow the 20th of March 2021, our President and Director of Research would be Present at Awutu Senya West District, to conduct capacity building for youth Parliamentarians.

This is in line with Poimen Ghana's objective of leadership capacity building for the youth.
We choose to challenge all impediments to female youth in particular and women in general, from reaching their potentials.

Poimen Ghana's Communiqué, on the Occasion of African Youth Day
It is common to find people, especially the elderly, adding words such as 'young' to official status and capacity of the youth when engaging them on platforms of national discourse.

These labellings may range from some seemingly nice and kind words like 'Young MP', 'young CEO' etc, to some unpalatable ones like 'babies with sharp teeth' and terms of such nature and import. They are stereotypical of youth in leadership.

Even those that seemingly sound nice and kind in tone, are intended to give superiority to the one using the term and in effect, to disempower the youth.

A typical example is a scene at the appointments committee of Ghana Parliament, where then senior minister designate evaded a question from the North Tongu constituency law maker (Hon Okudjeto Ablakwa), by simply saying “I think you were too young at the time to read the matter.” Though he apologized, it captures how youth in leadership are sometimes treated.

All these labellings are rooted in a certain cultural narrative about the youth which has found expression in our constitutional provision which caps age for contesting Presidency at 40years.

It is in my very considered view that if we don't have 'oluman MP', 'oluman CEO' etc, we cannot be calling others 'young MP' etc. In effect, we should treat people of all ages according to their respective capacity and status, or according to their merits, and not according to their age categorizations.

OUR VISION
Youth Development for useful participation in Nation Building

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Youth development through mentorship, educational outreach, Career Guidance, Skill Acquisition, Capacity building and Research.

The organization holds a strong belief that there must be conscious effort to shepherd the youth and develop their capacity for meaningful and impactful individual and national life.

We believe when ignorance, poverty and inequality which impedes growth is eliminated, that is when humanity can develop, participate and make meaningful contribution to nationhood.

OUR BACKGROUND
Poimen Ghana started in May 2014. It was known as Kerem Youth Mission.

Its focus was in Greater Accra Region of Ghana and held few talks and trainings with schools like New Life preparatory school, City Business College and Secondary school, New Star Vocational and Senior High school.

The organization went through a time of reorganization which led to revision of vision, review of mission, change of name and logo and modus operandi, thus assumed the name POIMEN GHANA.

Though there have been these reforms and reorganization, our focus is unchanged; Youth Development and Youth Leadership.

A youth-focused organization with interest in Youth Development through Entrepreneurship, Leadership, mentorship, career guidance, educational outreach & research

On the 2nd of February 2020, the President of Poimen Ghana; Awotunde Awosika, was at a program organized by Compassion International (Breku Centre) at Awutu Breku. He spoke on the topic "Transforming Society Through Church Leadership".

He touched on how the Church as collective body can influence society positively and how the individual Christian can influence their respective homes, work places and other social circles.
He reiterated that a religion that ends with an individual, actually ends. Therefore, the need for the sacred to influence the secular.

At Poimen Ghana, we're assiduously dedicated towards building the capacity of the youth and in line with that, the past week has been a very engaging one for us, with series of activities been undertaken in connection with the African Youth day celebrations.

On Thursday the 31st of October 2019, prior to the African Youth day, a delegation from Poimen Ghana paid a courtesy call to Malta's High Commission in Ghana, to discuss some youth Development issues in Ghana and some of the upcoming activities of Poimen Ghana.

The delegation was led by the President of Poimen Ghana; in his company were the head of Entrepreneurship and Skill Acquisition, Director of Research and Head of Youth-Gender.

On Friday, 1st November 2019, the President, Director of Research and Director of Operations of Poimen Ghana joined the Ghana Youth Parliament sitting to commemorate the African Youth Day at a sitting in the College of Physicians Auditorium in Accra.

On Saturday the 2nd of October 2019, the President and Director of Research were at Radio Central in Cape Coast, to discuss the African Youth Day, the themes and issues arising from the celebration and what it means for the Ghanaian Youth.

The duo then proceeded to Kwame Nkrumah Hall in the University of Cape Coast to take some Students of the Hall through their final training and rehearsal towards the Inaugural Sitting of the Kwame Nkrumah Hall Students' Parliament House.
On that same date at 20:30 GM, the team were on ATL FM in Cape Coast to discuss the African Youth Day and the need for the youth to build themselves and to actively take charge of their collective future.

"Implement compulsory bit of FCUBE - Youth forum to government - Graphic Online" https://www.graphic.com.gh/news/politics/implement-compulsory-bit-of-fcube-youth-forum-to-government.html

Director of Operations at Poimen Ghana; Prince Aidoo Mensah, was in the news advocating for better attention to be paid to our Basic Schools.

His comment as reported by Graphic during the International Youth Day, at the Central Regional Youth Parliament sitting, is as bellow:

"Mr Prince Aidoo Mensah of Poimen Ghana from the Assin Central constituency said the budget allocation for the free SHS programme was too high and called for attention for the basic level education too.

He further urged government to give attention to Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) saying they were needed to help build the nation and accelerate development."

Do you agree with our Director of Operations? Let us hear your thought

On the 11th October, Poimen Ghana started four days training session for some selected Students of Kwame Nkrumah Hall (KNH) who would constitute members of the Hall's Students Parliament in University of Cape Coast. This is necessitated by the desire and the request of the JCR President to reinstate and inaugrate the Parliament in the Hall.

This is in line with Poimen Ghana's interest in Youth Leadership Development.

Tomorrow, the 19th of October 2019, the third session of the 1st phase continues at Conference room of Kwame Nkrumah Hall, University of Cape Coast.

Also, allow the teaching of every basic subject in Local Languages from Nursery to Primary 3 and then Phase in English and other international languages from primary 4"

Youth is broad demographic group. Until we begin to segment them into various sub groups with varied needs, we will not be able to make much Impact.
