Ghana

Ghana is an example of a democracy in Africa. To further improve this institution in Ghana we need to improve the participation and involvement of young people and women in the democartic process.

Together with our partner Youths Icons of Ghana, we  will start electoral education from primary school level to high school to build and strenghten the minds of young people about the values of dempcracy and how it is practiced. We will do this through simulation where children and youths organise elections in schools and go through all the processes involved in elections.

We will also form partnerships with women organizations in Ghana to organize a set of capacity-building programs for women through electoral education networks and build partnerships with these networks to sustain political awareness at the grassroots and mainstream women`s participation in peace-building operations, including holding of free and fair elections, women exercising their full voting rights and some even contesting them.
