Hopeworks Ghana between 2016 and 2017 equipped unemployed youth (between the ages of 17 – 24 years) in Ghana with skills in Interior Decoration under the Youth Inclusive Entrepreneurial Development Initiative for Employment Project (YIEDIE). The project was implemented in deprived communities in the Greater Accra Region i.e Teshie, Accra Newtown, Nungua and Amasaman/Nsakina.

 

The Youth Inclusive Entrepreneurial Development Initiative for Employment Project (YIEDIE) is designed to create economic opportunities in Ghana’s construction sector for disadvantaged youth. YIEDIE is to equip youth with skills in technical, life and/or entrepreneurship skills leading to employment. As a result of the project, these youth are to increase their income and savings and create new job opportunities in the sector.

 

The project applies an integrated youth-led model to improve the capacity of youth and service providers across the value chain. Youth benefit from having job opportunities and higher income. Employers are to reap direct financial benefit from the higher productivity of labour and lowered cost of inefficiencies. The project was funded by MasterCard Foundation in USA and led by Global Communities, an international non-profits organization.
