The Ghana Chapter of the Junior Chamber International (JCI), a civil society organisation, will this week, host 600 delegates from 55 countries in Africa and the Middle East to deliberate on the challenges confronting young people in the world.
The participants will also assess the performance of JCI, which is celebrating its centenary anniversary this year.
The Vice President of JCI, Itai Manyere, announced this when he accompanied the national president, Albert Ankrah, to call on the Editor of The Ghanaian Times, David Agbenu, in his office in Accra.
He said the Chamber had, over the past century, helped young people around the world to do something positive with their lives.
He appealed to the Ghanaian Times to support the Chamber in its quest to educate and empower young people to help develop their communities and make the world a better place.
Mr. Ankrah explained that in Ghana, the Chamber had embarked on a number of projects in education, health, water and sanitation, among others.
Mr. Agbenu, on his part, commended JCI for its efforts towards empowering young people to develop their communities.
He said the Ghanaian Times had, over the years, been supporting the activities of JCI Ghana, by highlighting its activities, and promised that it would continue to support the noble efforts of the Chamber to help build a better society for all.
