I got the opportunity to participate in this wonderful training through IYEC Ghana. The Director of IYEC encouraged us the youth to engage in training programmes. Finally through IYEC I got a full scholarship and the opportunity to be part of a training course offered by Action Aid Ghana.

I left Accra on a Sunday afternoon wondering, how this training in Tamale was going to be like because it was my first time going to Tamale and it was an opportunity I could not afford to miss. I was so excited I was going to meet people from different part s of the country and also have the opportunity to learn from them. Tamale was actually a very quiet place with a nice environment than I expected. Upon my arrival, I got nice reception when I got to the Action aid apartments.
