Welcome to the YHFG website. We believe in building a better future for northern Ghana by empowering the next generation. If young people have access to school, stay longer in schooling and come out with successful learning outcomes, they have better chances building up healthy and successful lives. But in northern Ghana, limited access to quality education, lack of comprehensive sexual health education and services, teenage pregnancies, child marriage and abject poverty are some of the factors that can cause young people to drop out of school. That is why our programmes are focused on promoting young people’s access to quality education, sexual reproductive health and rights information and services, and skills development. We also aim to develop better market access and agri-business systems for farmers to increase their household incomes and be able to support their children’s education.
