Youth In Afforestation await for unpaid arrears


The Ghana national Youth in Afforestation program under the Forestry Commission has indicated their zeal to eventually embark on series of protests over unpaid arrears to claim their due arrears.

The group indicates that the government has failed to settle their due allowances as initiated.


In an interview with myjoyghana, the beneficiaries said, all efforts to address the issue for clarification of their arrears have proven futile.

The spokesperson for the beneficiaries, Bossman Adutwum also threatened a full-scale demonstration if their demands are not met.


“Beneficiaries of the Youth in Afforestation really want our management to know that if they do not pay us our owed allowances, we are going to hold placards in front of the headquarters. If nothing comes out of that, we will go back to the drawing board to fix a date for a mega demonstration.”


In line with the NPP’s 2016 manifesto commitment of the forest rehabilitation, and forest protection activities, the Youth in Afforestation Programme was launched on August 13, 2018.

It is an initiative to help reduce the rate of youth unemployment while building more trees.


But sadly, the beneficiaries have over time pleaded with the government to do well in honouring its promise to pay allowances owed to them.

The government’s inability to pay the arrears has always compelled the beneficiaries to resort to demonstrations to drum home their concerns about the non-payment of allowances and poor working conditions.


They bemoaned the hardship they have been forced to endure over the period as a result of the arrears.
