GCB Bank PLC continues to show its strong commitment to empowering the youth and SMEs, especially after the devastating economic effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Bank has disbursed GHC100,000 as support to RESILIENT GHANA to provide a platform that challenges and empowers the youth to identify, create and present innovative solutions to real-life problems in Ghana while creating lasting businesses.
The not-for-profit organisation seeks to build the entrepreneurial capacity of the youth currently through its Mentorship Programme, which runs monthly webinars and business masterclasses and is open to all without a cost.
RESILIENT GHANA also is set to roll out ‘The RESILIENT GHANA Challenge’, a Business Accelerator for young entrepreneurs aged 18-35 to specifically provide opportunities to support deserving youth- led SMEs annually.
GCB’s contribution positions RESILIENT GHANA to train, cultivate and nurture young entrepreneurs and SMEs to develop their businesses with best industry practices and strategies.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Kofi Adomakoh, Managing Director of GCB Bank stated that youth development and entrepreneurship is an integral part of the Bank’s corporate social responsibility strategy because the youth are the bedrock of the country’s economic drive.
