Preparations for this year’s Project Citizen Showcase have been rigorous as participating students collate developmental plans for their communities. “Project Citizen” is one of the flagship programmes of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to provide a platform for the youth to participate actively in Ghana’s governance agenda. Participating students usually are tasked to discover critical problems and the needs assessment of their communities and proffer solutions to tackling the highlighted problems.
This year, about 60 schools across the country we will take part in the Project Citizen Showcase contest. Each region will be represented by six (6) schools. It is a nationwide contest by the NCCE with financial support from the European Union (EU). The students even before the contest are trained on development and governance modules and as well groomed to convincingly present their community needs to a panel of judges.
The 2018 project citizen showcase is focusing on Anti-corruption, Rule of Law and Accountability (ARAP) aimed at promoting good governance in Ghana by reducing corruption and improving accountability compliance with the rule of law. The project will take off from 12th November, 2018 to 30th November, 2018.
