We Empower Young Men & Women
At World Inspiring Network, we empower both young men and women, enabling them to become catalysts for change in society, fostering economic growth, reducing unemployment rates, and driving sustainable development.
Tackling Youth Unemployment
Youth unemployment in Ghana is a major problem. According to the World Bank, Ghana is faced with 12% youth unemployment and more than 50% underemployment, both higher than overall unemployment rates in Sub-Saharan African countries. Despite major investments by both government and private sector, this challenge will intensify if job opportunities remain limited. To tackle youth unemployment, World Inspiring Network introduced the Youth Drive initiative. Youth Drive aims to empower and uplift Ghanaian youth to develop the skills needed to succeed in today’s job market. We partner with government agencies, civil society organizations, and other stakeholders to offer a variety of programs that focus on entrepreneurship, job readiness, and employment opportunities across the country.
Tackling Gender Bias
Gender parity in Ghana is considerably lacking. Most women and girls living in rural parts of the country usually do not have proper education, training, and a dignified source of income, making them more vulnerable to sexual exploitation, including trafficking, abuse, and unwanted pregnancies, than women in urban areas. Those who experience domestic or intimate partner violence have fewer options to leave violent relationships due to their lack of income and resources. In view of that, World Inspiring Network introduced the She Can project, an initiative that seeks to create employment opportunities for women through vocational training, technical skills training, job skills development, and mentorship programs in rural parts of the country. This initiative will hopefully contribute to reducing women’s unemployment in Ghana by providing more opportunities for young people to gain skills and find decent jobs that can elevate their living standards.
