About Ghana Food Movement and the Youth in Agribusiness Program

Ghana Food Movement (GFM) is a network of young people that are passionate about food and farming in Ghana and that want to contribute to a sustainable food system. We organize events such as dinners, food safaris, movie screenings, and panel discussions on topics that relate to Ghana’s food system. We also organize bigger projects with different partners. One of them is the Youth In Agribusiness (YIA) program.

During a 4 monthly trainee program, we train and connect youth with reputable food and Agri companies in Ghana. This program uses a unique approach as it combines hands-on (soft) skill training with practical experience. During the entire program, youth learn from other young and talented CEOs, farmers, food entrepreneurs, business developers, and each other.

After a successful first program, we will organize two more YIA programs in 2023. The planning and preparation started in September 2022 and the actual programs will start in January and September 2023. After this, we hope to expand the program throughout Ghana. This means that there is potential to grow in this role.
