11,000 youth trained in cocoa farming

MASO, a programme under the Youth Forward initiative led by Mastercard Foundation, is currently transforming the lives of over 11,000 out-of-school young people across Ghana in the agriculture sector.

The programme is aimed at creating job opportunities in cocoa production for Ghanaian youth who could not further their education.

“The programme is to support young people who have dropped out of school in Africa to gain employable skills to be able to have economic opportunities.

The MASO Programme Manager, Mr Fred Frimpong revealed that the programme, which was started in 2015 and expected to end in October 2020, has already impacted over 10,800 youth directly and 30,000 people indirectly.
