The Child Rights International 2021 survey report has revealed the top 5 Social Problems of Ghana, according to Ghanaian children between the ages of 12 and 17.

According to the results of the survey that say 11,288 take part, 66% of the children believe unemployment is a major social problem that demands government attention.
In the same survey, 42% of the respondents hold the view that there is a high level of poverty in the country. In an attempt to test the corruption perception of the children, 36% of them feel there is a high level of corruption in the country.
Streetism and poor education follow in that order with 36% and 29% respectively as the 4th and 5th top Social Problems of Ghana according to the children.
These challenges identified need to be given critical national attention because 555 of these children aged between 12 and 17 years prefer to exit the country for greener pastures by 2040. Failure of the nation to deal with these concerns may cause brain drain in the next 20 years. The reasons why they want to travel out of the country is to seek better education and standards of living in other countries.
