THE GRACEDLIFE BUSINESS LEADERS
The World Bank in its 2016 report on jobs in Ghana revealed that about 48 percent of the youth in the country, who are between 15-24 years, do not have jobs. The Ghana Living Standards Survey for the year 2012/2013 estimates that 250,000 young men and women enter the Ghanaian labour market every year with only 2% absorbed in the formal sector whilst the 98% seek employment in the informal sector or remain unemployed.
We believe that the new generation of business leaders will determine the future - social and economic development of Ghana and Africa. Our goal is to provide the necessary training, mentoring and coaching and support to young people who want to start up their business as well as to owners of small and medium-sized enterprises. We seek to encourage a mindset of "I will employ" instead of "I'm unemployed" among them.
We are convinced that youth entrepreneurship can establish a perfect way of not losing the creativity, competence and skills of the youth, and drastically reduce unemployment in Africa by creating valuable opportunities for young people to work. By presenting to the youth this appealing perspective and opportunity of becoming a business leader, and offering them the support and thorough training on how to do it, we can contribute to enabling young people to dream, to realise their potential and to achieve whatever business idea they have.
With training and mentorship from experienced business leaders and knowledgeable business fellows, we seek to empower aspiring business leaders with the knowledge, entrepreneurship skills, and character to be innovative, build value, establish enterprises, create employment opportunities, and capture global markets through the spirit of optimism, creativity and resourcefulness, problem-solving, integrity, teamwork and partnership, and hard work.

It’s clear that faith leaders are the heart and soul of our communities and acting as fathers/mothers, role models, mentors, and leaders, and providing support and guidance to their congregations or members.

THE GRACEDLIFE EDUCATION LEADERS
Education is indeed the key to development, transformation and success. With nearly 39 percent of Ghana’s population under the age of 15 (in 2016), the country has a window of opportunity to harness a formidable “demographic dividend”, as long as young people can be appropriately educated.
In spite of the progress Ghana has made in improving access to education for all, there are still challenges preventing thousands of children from going to school and learning. The school environment is usually not conducive to learning. Classes are overcrowded, water and sanitation facilities are inadequate and trained teachers and school books are in short supply, even worse in rural areas. The poor quality of education is reflected in students’ results and subsequently in their way of life.
Our goal is to raise education leaders to provide necessary leadership and inspiration for learning, research, knowledge-sharing and human development, and make quality education and learning easy, less costly and easily accessible to all people through information technology.
Our education leaders will seek to build advanced learning platforms and promote a studying community that appreciates the value of education and service, and develop infrastructure and innovative technology for studies, research and service while equipping young people with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the growing demand by the job market.

THE GRACEDLIFE MULTIMEDIA LEADERS
The term ‘media’ is derived from the word 'medium', signifying mode or channel or carrier. Media is the channel of reaching a target group or audience. Formerly, it was used in respect of books and newspapers (i.e. print media) but with the advent of technology, media now includes television, movies, radio and internet.
Media plays a great role in creating and shaping public opinion and influencing lives. Mindsets, morals and manners are shaped by the things we see, hear or read, and the media is that channel of communication that helps to achieve that.
To influence lives positively, we must revolutionize communication in Africa, especially digital media.

Nothing has changed living in modern society as deeply as the massive use of gadgets and the internet in everyday life. Contents on the internet have pervaded each and every area of our lives: information, conducting business, communication, spirituality, entertainment, as well as education.
