Addo is part of a three – member team from Ghana who are in the United Kingdom (UK) to receive the Young Leaders Awards for the contribution to community development in Ghana.

The other two are Winnifred Selby and Efua Asibon.

In an interview granted to media houses after the awards, he expressed his delight at the request.

He is being recognized for his “Food For All Program”, which is focused on a fight against the waste of food.

The main objective of the program is to mobilize leftover food from restaurants and food vendors, in order to feed the homeless and the mentally – challenged.

The three Ghanaians have spent time being mentored and trained by the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education in the UK.

YEN earlier informed readers about the invitation of the three to the UK, and in an even earlier post, focused attention “waakye’s” reputation as the go – to dish if one is hungry.

This new development has invariably confirmed the meal as one of Ghana’s finest creations ever known.

YEN is building a platform where Ghanaians can share local news and own experiences with each other.
