Support 5000 young graduates to be self-employed

Dec 2, 2013



We say a very special thank-you to our recurrent donors for supporting us regularly ever since we started. We appreciate all the donations we continue to get from all our existing donors as well as the new ones. Our main programme – Support 5000 Young Graduates To Be Self-Employed, continue to receive donations and have received US$7,254.00 out of the US$100,000.00 needed, and we are sincerely grateful for that. Our Support 20 Youth Incubators a year programme has received US$ 1,420.00 out of the US$3,300.00 needed.Thank you aand keep up your good works.


We now have 13 new young entrepreneurs as well as 35 young models benefiting from our Support 20 Youth Incubators a year programme.

 NANA KOFI: We have on board a group called Team Network. This is a youth TV production and talent management outfit. The team comprises 11 young graduates from senior high school. The leader is Nana Kofi, a very enterprising entrepreneur. Just last week, TY facilitated and presented at their first talent training workshop for 35 young models. For Totally Youth, this group is demonstrating the TY concept of youth-supporting-youth-into-business. We therefore hope very much that our donors will help us help this group and their clients. A donation of US$3,300 will help us help Nana Kofi achieve his dream in TV production as well as managing other young people to succeed in their careers.

 CHEF SETH: We also have Chef Seth joining our Catering Center. He has joined us to build his capacity so he can set up his own restaurant in the near future. He is a qualified chef who had worked in a hotel restaurant for a short period under unfavorable conditions. TY has provided him with free accommodation on our premises since he is from out of town. This will save him transportation costs. He will be generating income while learning to ensure that he will be able to buy items toward his planned restaurant after his incubation. TY is providing him with all facilities and consumable under our revolving fund concept. Seth is getting ready to share his local and continental dishes with the North Ridge population, next week.  A donation of US$3,300 will help us help Seth to achieve his dream of setting up a restaurant.


Dear donors, with unemployment rising globally, your support is very valuable to us. We would therefore appreciate it very much, if you could also have time to advise us in new and better ways to help the hundreds of thousands unemployed youth in Ghana.

 We are facing a lot of difficulties raising funds in full and on time. This means that our budgets for projects keep rising due to increases in market prices by the time we have enough money to pay for products and services. Consequently, we are unable to complete most of the requisite components of our projects to ensure maximum support to participants. This also makes it impossible for us increase the number of unemployed youth who need our support.

 If we could raise the full amounts required for each of our programmes/projects on time, we will be self-sustaining within two years. We are therefore appealing for timely and recurrent donations. We know that you have the right to use your money any way you choose. Please consider the plight of the unemployed youth and support one today. Please become a recurrent donor for this project or for our flagship programme – Support 20 Youth Incubators a year. A donation of US$3,300 will help us help each of the 20 incubator to achieve their dreams and also make Totally Youth Self-Sustaining in two years. Thanks
