Our commitment to truth and authenticity is unwavering in a world filled with information. We believe that every voice matters and misinformation should never hold us back.

Join us to safeguard our democracy and strengthen the bonds of global partnership. Together, we’ll shape a future where facts prevail, and the power of knowledge unites us all.

Policy Brief

Youth Participation In Democracy, Elections And Peace: The Ghanaian Context

This policy brief provides an overview of the issues surrounding youth participation in governance and electoral processes in Ghana and proposes key factors that can contribute to stability and development in this area. Ghana has a large youthful population, with 73.7% of the population falling below the age of 35 years. However, youth participa- tion in political and electoral processes remains low, with less than 2% of the 275 -member Parliament falling within the 21-35 age range. This marginalization of the youth population creates a risk for social unrest and conflict. To address this issue, the government of Ghana and other stakeholders need to implement various initiatives to enhance youth engagement, civic education, and youth representation.

Our Current Projects

Educate To Innovate With STEM

Mobile STEM Clinics For Final Year JHS Beneficiaries

As part of  Youth Bridge Foundation’s COVID-19 response efforts to ensure teaching and learning continuity (especially in Science and Mathematics), the Educate To Innovate With STEM Project Team will be embarking on community outreach with STEM Mobile Clinics that would offer hands on and practical laboratory sessions for all final year JHS students in the Project areas.
