Monica and Angelina learn new skills in Ghana Vocational Skills School
The Ghana Vocational Skills school provides training in the area of catering, dress making & hair dressing to out-of-school girls and women in vulnerable communities in Accra, Ghana.
Ghana's national crisis
Ghana’s population is relatively young, with only around 3 percent of the total population aged 65 years or older. The country has a 56.6% unemployment rate among the youth population (UNESCO, 2016). Based on the historical average, out of about 360,000 secondary school students who graduated in 2020, only about 35% were able to transition into tertiary level, leaving close to 240,000 in search of skills and jobs. It is a general knowledge that enhancing access to job opportunities for these high numbers of second cycle drop-outs requires access to market led competency based skills training for employment or enterprise creation.
