Despite the introduction of the Capitation Grant and the NEPAD School Feeding Programme throughout the country, reports reaching us from the northern region reveal that school enrolment is still low and illiteracy rate among the youth is still high.

The Chairman of the Ghana Development Communities Association (GDCA), a non-governmental organisation that Denmark funds, Prof Abubakr Al-Hassan, said school enrolment, despite the introduction of the Capitation Grant and the School Feeding Programme, is low as compared to other parts of the country.

Prof Al-Hassan said this at the opening of a seminar dubbed: the "Denmark Seminar" of the GDCA at Dalun. It was themed: "Young Voices".

He said school dropout rate among girls is high at the upper primary and junior secondary school levels and unemployment situation is equally disturbing.

Prof Al-Hassan appealed to stakeholders in education to address the problem to enable the youth of the area to contribute to national development.
