A Ghanaian youth advocate, Prosper Tornyi, has been selected for the 2022 Community Engagement Exchange (CEE) programme in the United States.
The US Government-sponsored initiative equips emerging civil society leaders with the expertise, resources, and skills to support resilient communities.
Tornyi, the Founder and Executive Director of Proswrites Foundation, hopes the programme will empower him to organise a digital lab for youth, women, and girls to strengthen their problem-solving skills and foster community engagement skills through digital literacy, mentorship, and leadership training.
After the training, Tornyi will among other things, gain the ability to lead collaboratively and ethically while addressing issues of public concern.

Excellent, many congratulations Prosper. Wishing you the best. Blessings.
Sharif Mumuni Billey shared:
I think the donor community should rather provide support to well-motivated non-state actors such as this one. The work culture they develop in performance management strategies is much more enduring and far-reaching in impact.
Ghana could be much more prosperous if we took the time to study how smaller organisations succeed. We really do not need persons with gold-plated qualifications to manage our state institutions. We rather need persons with Diamond values and skills. Congratulations, young man.
