KUMASI, Aug 3, — A Namibian government delegation, led by a board member of the South African Nation’s Youth Service, has arrived in the country to understudy Ghana’s National Service Scheme (NSS).

Charles Kabayane said they are eager to share experiences, to get to know more about how the scheme has been operating over the years, and its impact on the economy.

He said they were in no doubt that a lot would be learned during the visit to empower his country’s youth and channel their energies into national development.

He was speaking during a courtesy call on the Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Samuel Sarpong in Kumasi.

Their main interest areas include the preparation of the scheme’s budget, processes of selection, and who to target, he added.

Sarpong said the visit would not only help to further strengthen the warm ties between the two nations, but would go a long way to help the youth to make significant contribution to the development of their country.

He said the NSS has brought tremendous benefits to the nation.

Kwesi Quainoo, Ashanti Regional Director of the Scheme, later led members of the delegation to inspect the NSS 400-acre maize farm at Ejura.
