Our Work in Ghana
Building a network of entrepreneurs and an innovative community of change-makers in alignment with employment strategies set by the Ghanaian government.
- Our Goal: Enable three million young people to secure work by 2030.
- Context: The current rates of under- and unemployment in Ghana are 42 percent and 12 percent respectively.
- Our Approach: With a focus on young entrepreneurial women, provide future business leaders with access to business development skills, financing, and marketplaces. Also, identify growing sectors of the economy and strengthen education in these areas, placing priority on digital training and technology-focused employment.
- Priority sectors: Focus on areas that offer strong potential for creating work for young people, as well as informal settings to support women’s entrepreneurship. These sectors and settings include agriculture, tourism, and hospitality—each underpinned by digital technology.
