Namibia has sent a delegation to understudy Ghana’s youth policy and possibly adopt elements that can improve their own country.
The South African country sent a delegation from the committee on Gender, Youth and Information Communication Technology (ICT) in Namibia’s Parliament.
Their aim is to improve the socio-economic fortunes of their youth, having been impressed with Ghana’s progress in the areas of gender and ICT.

The committee was led by Namibian Member of Parliament, Nangula Joyce Namuhuja.
Following a meeting with some executives of the National Youth Authority (NYA) in Accra, she said Ghana is an example to many African countries when it comes to youth development.
This, she said, is what Namibia wants to emulate from the West African country in the coming years.
Mrs. Namuhuja said Namibia aims to achieve the 2063 goal set by the African Union for member countries to adhere to a comprehensive development work plan for its youth.
She praised Ghana’s development in Gender, Youth and ICT, insisting the country has become the benchmark when it comes to these sectors.
Welcoming the Namibian delegation, the Deputy Chief Executive officer of the National Youth Authority, Bright Acheampong, said Ghana is ready to offer any help to them.
According to him, it is only through the sharing of ideas that both Ghana and Namibia can develop.
“There is an African Union with an agenda 2063 so once we are able to share notes and iron out the differences we will be able to move forward,” he said.
