NOYED-Ghana is a youth based non-organisation that is working towards an improved quality of life of the youth and the vulnerable (women and children) in society in the northern part of Ghana. Education, Health and Livelihood & Governance are the areas of operation of the organisation.
The Net Organisation for Youth Empowerment and Development (NOYED-Ghana) was established and registered under the Registrar General’s Department of Ghana in the year 2005 and operates as a Non – Governmental, Not-for-profit Organisation. NOYED-Ghana is also registered with the National Youth Authority (NYA-Tamale) as a youth related organisation.
It was created by a group of young people who were trained in community development by the Ghana Red Cross Society (Tamale), as well as other youth led organisations including, the Ghana United Nations Students and Youth Associations (GUNSA), the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).
NOYED-Ghana continues to be led by youth to champion the development of the vulnerable and less fortunate communities.

These people are carefully selected for their technical expertise in the thematic areas of education, health, women’s empowerment and good governance and livelihood.
