"I joined YPARD at the end of 2022 and became an active member in 2023. Both my experiences with local engagement and interaction with the Global Coordination Unit have been amazing. In YPARD China, I have had the opportunity to exchange ideas with fellow members and expand my network. Additionally, I have been able to launch some initiatives that I had always wanted to pursue. With the GCU, I have obtained the opportunity to engage in policy advocacy at a global level, which proves beneficial for both my personal and professional development."

"Since 2017, I've been volunteering with YPARD, becoming Ghana's country Representative in 2023. I manage over 80 Skilling centers in agribusinesses, agri-institutions, and secondary schools. I provide practical skills training, business development, coaching, Agricultural food systems mentorship, and job placements to foster mindset change and youth employment in agriculture. I collaborate with Young Agripreneurs and farmers, securing +1 Global fund for food security for YPARD Ghana to enhance food access and resilience for rural-urban linkages within food systems to create jobs for women and youth."
