This, according to him, is reflective of GNPC’s work in building the capacity of the youth through technical and vocational training and thus, the appropriateness of the partnership.

YDC-USA is also partnering with 2 other Ghanaian State-Owned Agencies, the Ghana Digital Centers Limited and the National Service Scheme, which are involved in the development and implementation of various youth-centered programmes in Ghana.

This partnership is also expected to enhance YDC’s quest to expand its operations in Africa with Ghana offering a stable, conducive environment for any developing economy.
