Press Release: Ghanaian selected to be peace pioneer in international youth project 

24-year-old Albert Abraham Arhin of Ghana, a staff of Community Welfare Foundation (COMWELF-Ghana), has been selected as one of thirty-five young participants in the 2010 Nkabom Commonwealth Youth Leadership Programme.

Albert, is completing an MSc Sustainability (Environment and Development) at the University of Leeds, UK is an ardent youth activist. He completed his BSc in Development Planning from KNUST, Ghana. Beating stiff competition from over 500 other international applicants, he has emerged as Ghana’s sole representative in a group comprising 28 diverse nationalities. 

The Nkabom Programme is a flagship project of the Royal Commonwealth Society, the oldest and largest NGO devoted to Commonwealth affairs. The word Nkabom (pronounced ink-a-bom) means 'coming together' in parts of Ghana where the programme was first held in 2004.

From 6 September 2010, 35 young people aged between 18 and 25 from around the world will gather in Kigali, Rwanda for an interactive 10-day programme to develop skills focussing on international understanding, peace building and conflict resolution. Rwanda, which is the Commonwealth’s newest member state and where the average age is 18 years, will be an ideal setting for an initiative that propagates the potential of young people to be agents of peace and development.  

Albert Abraham Arhin said: “I am delighted to have been offered a place on the programme, especially given its youth focus. I strongly believe that youth are a part of the solution to conflicts.’’

RCS Youth Programmes Manager, Claire Anholt said: “The standard of applications received this year has been outstanding. The knowledge, experience and perspective that Albert will bring to the programme will, I am sure, empower his fellow participants to promote peace within their own communities and in the wider world.’’
