PDA has been contracted by the Mastercard Foundation as the Impact Partner Organisation (IPO) for its Young Africa Works (YAW) strategy implementation in Ghana. As IPO, PDA is working to track the Foundation’s impact in agriculture, innovations and across the entire Ghanaian economy, particularly job creation and entrepreneurial opportunities for young people. Currently, PDA is working with the Foundation’s Impact Team to conduct an outcomes baseline assessment. The baseline assessment will then serve as a benchmark for tracking the impact of the Foundation’s investment in Ghana in the next two years. Preparations for the baseline assessment are far advanced and data collection started across the country by the middle of June.
