Our Work in Ghana

The Foundation’s Priorities in Ghana Over the Next Five Years

The Foundation’s work in Ghana aligns with the government’s An Agenda for Jobs: Creating Prosperity and Equal Opportunity for All strategy, and the country’s desire to become a global entrepreneurial and technology hub. The strategy will begin with three key priorities.

  • Enable the growth of women-owned enterprises through business development services, access to finance, and access to markets.
  • Enable young people to acquire skills that are needed by businesses in growing sectors of the economy and strengthen the quality of education to prepare students for the world of work.
  • Scale digital training and strengthen technology-focused employment opportunities.

Opportunities for Learning

Ghana presents a unique opportunity for learning how to support women’s entrepreneurship in informal settings. We will also look to understand best practices for improving improve teachers’ ability to deliver employment and learning-oriented curricula. We will also build and share evidence to drive continent-wide influence.
