The Future of Ghana initiative is a two- fold project with an overall vision of a self sustaining first world Ghana! We believe by mobilising and organising the next generation of leaders this can be done. Thus we do this in two ways;
1. Producing a publication annually to showcase and highlight 30 young Ghanaian future leaders.
2. Hosting a dynamic Youth Leadership Forum in Ghana with International speakers and panellists


We believe the publication will act as a catalyst to encourage greater youth participation with the development of Ghana.

We aim to produce a positive visual resource promoting Ghana whilst also using the publication as a point of inspiration for youth to showcase relatable role models excelling in a variety of industries globally.

The publication launches annually on Ghana Independence day to amplify a forward thinking narrative about the Future of Ghana, showcasing positivity whilst creating platforms to discuss solutions to specific issues the Ghanaian community face in Ghana and the Diaspora.
