Volunteers, including YAM members will be mobilized and empowered to perform their policy and resource mobilization roles for the Association, through increase in volunteer drive and other initiatives. Measures will be put in place to ensure continued compliance with International, National and IPPF standards for resource mobilisation.
PPAG was born out of volunteerism. This has been the backbone of the Association in that without volunteers there is no PPAG. Volunteers have over the years performed their roles and responsibilities in governance, policy formulation and resource mobilization which contribute to the Association’s longstanding status as a leading SRHR NGO in Ghana. Volunteer membership and participation is however, dwindling. Targeted recruitment and capacity building is required to sustain the volunteer base in order to achieve Outcome 4 of the Association’s new strategic plan.
- To increase volunteer membership to 3,000 by the end of December 2017
- To ensure 100% participation of volunteers in the Association’s programmes and activities by the end of December 2017
- To ensure 100% compliance with international and national standards by the Association by the end of December 2017.
