NGO to recruit 5000 youth to assist health sector

The Western Regional branch of the Team Of Popular Youth (TOPY), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) has promised that by 2015 it will provide about 5000 youth to help in the health sector.

The association also aims at encouraging the youth to take up farming to earn a living.

Speaking at the inauguration of the NGO, which was on the theme: “Empowering the youth for a better Ghana,” at the Tarkwa in the Western Region, Mr Raymond Tettevi, Regional Chairman of the Association said TOPY would ensure a turning point in the socio-economic life of the youth.

Mr Tettevi noted that some of the youth have decided to join the progressive minded people of Ghana to exploit their God given talents and facilitate the abolishment of poverty while others have developed unruly behaviours like “the seizing of public toilet keys and closing down government departments”.

He said members of the association have committed themselves to a new culture of introspection, which is the do it yourself attitude.

Mr Marcus Garvin, Leader of TOPY said the organisation would give hope to the youth and attract voters for the ruling National Democratic Congress Party in Election 2012.

Mr Horace Nii Ayi Ankrah, Chief Patron of the NGO said TOPY has supported more than 3000 people across the country and is planning to help the needy in the society
