Organisation Description:

Youth Without Borders Ghana is a youth-for-youth development Non-Governmental organization and social movement with national, continental and global outlook. We seek to courageously challenge the systems around the world of young people that hinder the full realization of their potential and development. Our commitment is to build concrete structures and solutions to address the developmental challenges facing young people and society at large.

YWB believes that sound youth development can be achieved through engagement and information sharing in an atmosphere in which youth self -worth, powers, experiences and achievements are recognized, realized and valued.

Founded in 2014, Youth Without Borders Ghana was incorporated under the Republic of Ghana’s Companies Act, 1963 (Act 179) on the 17th February, 2016 with registration number CG011192016 as Youth Development Non-Governmental and Non-Profit Youth Organization.

Young people stand for certain qualities that are urgently needed to accelerate development at the national, continental and global level. YWB is ready to gather the needed expertise and resources towards this end by bringing together young minds. We are very optimistic that their impact on development at all levels will hugely be felt.

Mission: To harness the potential of young people for sustainable development. We believe that young people through their passion, creativity and connectivity can create and implement solutions that tackle the world’s greatest developmental challenges. This will demand us to make available and utilize the right resources through the power of young people.
