WAVE applies its learning and innovation to support a growing network of educators and skills providers (public and private) to scale their impact on youth employability, employment and income transformation. Since 2016, WAVE has trained over 30 organizations and supported 15 of them to scale up the impact of their programs to train over 25,000 youth cumulatively.
60% of youth in West Africa are unemployed. This leaves Africa at a critical tipping point in the region’s prospect for economic growth and development.
Across the regions academic qualifications are completely not reflective of life skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking.
WAVE strives to provide young people with opportunities to learn skills and obtain experience that will make them work ready.
This shortage of skills leads to youth unemployment as youth do not possess the necessary skills required for the job market.
WAVE partners with organizations whose mission and vision align, train their staff, who in turn go on to train other recipients. Contact us now if you want to become a partner.Contact Us
