On September 23, 2020, Reach Out to Future Leaders Movement (ROFLM) launched its climate action project dubbed Youth Take Lead on SDG13. The purpose was to encourage youth participation to solve problems pertaining to climate change and to develop the enthusiasm and skills to champion the cause of climate action by being part of the solution.

Activities undertaken included webinar on zoom, WhatsApp chat, Community sensitization, Climate action training and SDG multiplication, and tree growing exercise. Partners for the project were Youth Empowerment Synergy, 100% for the Children, CISU- Civil Society in Development, School Farms, Green Stewardship International, Future Team Ghana, Ghana Youth Environmental Movement, and Giving Life Nature Volunteer.

Ms. Doreen Appiah-Num, Project lead for the project, expressed heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to speakers, volunteers, staff, youth around the world especially those in Ve-Golokuati, Ghana, and the general public for their enthusiasm and willingness to embark on climate action and thanked their participation and support throughout the project.

Giving a background of the project, Ms. Doreen Appiah-Num expressed the challenges faced by Ghana and the world at large pertaining to extreme temperatures, flooding, and unstable weather conditions caused by climate change and the need to involve young people who have the energy and numbers to influence change.

On ending the project, she reiterated that although the project may have come to an end, the fight against climate change continues. She urged everyone, young people especially, to take up this challenge and offer their skills and ideas towards a changing planet.

Ms. Doreen also used the opportunity to congratulate her entire project team: Georgina Borlu, Bance Salifu, Alfred Godwin Adjabeng, Joshua Bansah, and Terry Andoh for a good job done and ensuring the project was a great success.
In all, the Youth Take Lead project successfully recruited over five hundred youth change makers from seven countries who pledged their commitments to championing the fight against climate change. One hundred trees were also planted in Ve-Golokuati in the Volta Region.

ROFLM and School Farms appreciate all and sundry for their support throughout the project. It is our hope this fight continues to be fruitful.
