Participants requestedfor at least a minimum of two full residential daysto enable them cover topics under discussionA remote challenge was late start of activities as aresult of lack of punctuality of the youth inattending programmes. (A reflection of the Pointabove)PROMOTING INTEGRITY IN GHANAS 2012ELECTIONS - FUNDED BY CFLI 23
  24. 24. Opportunity AreasThe youth are now opening up to share issues thatconcern their lives and future. They are willing toavail themselves for knowledge and capacity totake their future into their own hands. With a littlepush, the youth would become in reality, theagents of change we desire them to be. Thistherefore create the opportunity for investing inproject which the would earn better resultsPROMOTING INTEGRITY IN GHANAS 2012ELECTIONS - FUNDED BY CFLI 24
  25. 25. RecommendationsThe need to scale up the project in the rest of theregions for maximum impactThe quick integration of student political leaders intogovernments and other higher state institution justafter school seem to be the booster for most studentyouth, causing them to do anything at any cost to helptheir political parties win power at all cost.There is therefore the need to build their capacity inthe area of integrity beyond elections before they“climb’ the political heights.PROMOTING INTEGRITY IN GHANAS 2012ELECTIONS - FUNDED BY CFLI 25
