Ghana is known to be one of the peaceful and economically growing countries in Africa. The nation and other developing countries have a youth population which obviously warrants government attention in addressing the needs of young people. Over the past years, a number of policies and programmes have been put in place to address the challenges young people face and also to empower them. YPWC is one of the youth organizations in Ghana that is championing the role of young people in development issues. We have found it needful to have a web platform (www.ypwc.org) as well as social media platforms ( https://twitter.com/ypwc and https://www.facebook.com/ypwc.org ) that help in connecting young people with development issues.
