Young & Wise GH is a Christian capital development enterprise committed to renewing paradigms and inspiring young people to develop their leadership potential and contribute to the socio-economic development of Ghana.
Since 2016, Young and Wise GH has been organizing the annual Obuasi Must Work Summit which is an empowerment platform where facilitators from the business world share their experiences with the aim of assisting and promoting entrepreneurship among the youth.
Obuasi Must Work (Empowerment Summit) facilitates the transformation of Obuasi through values that influence the discovery of purpose and principles under personal leadership and self-governance.
According the Executive Director of Young and Wise GH, Abraham Poku Hammond, it is his belief that empowerment dialogues between businesses, government and the civil society can cushion the progress of Obuasi.
“We envision the Obuasi Community as a place where the youth feel inspired to discover and deploy ideas, groom up potentials and talents in them to step up to the challenge of rethinking the future of the community” he said.
“We have been committed to realizing this vision through the mobilization of residents of Obuasi who participate in capacity building events” he added.
The theme for this year’s summit is Enterprise Development, Obuasi beyond Gold and the facilitators include seasoned journalist and development expert, Richard Kojo Ellimah, estate developer and CEO of Danywise construction, Frank Aboagye Danyansah. Others are Daniel Arthur-Bentum, Socio-Economic Development Superintendent – Sustainability Department at A.G.A., Pas.
