Gameli Adzaho, Barcamp Ho co-founder said, ?The BarCamp Ho deserves commendation for fashioning out a unique event that connects young entrepreneurs and innovators from the Volta region and other parts of Ghana. It has provided a fertile nurturing ground for many brilliant initiatives, including GhanaThink?s own programmes such as Junior Camp Ghana?.

The 5th Barcamp in Ho hopes to define and discuss how young people can be leaders of community development in Ho and beyond. Courage Tetteh, the Barcamp Ho coordinator opined, ?The onus lies on youth to save society from the misery of mediocrity in every facet of community. The solution to the myriad of challenges around us can be diagnosed through idea exchange?. Information about Tigo?s Digital Changemakers competition in conjunction with Reach for Change will be shared. Courage continued, ?I call on every youth in every corner of Ho and Volta Region to lead change in any small way they can. Youth are the Change; embrace the change”.

The speed mentoring session will have mentors giving insights and answers to questions from attendees.
