Community impact 

Cerath will train and support 500 youths, women and returnee migrants on green entrepreneurship and employability. Within 6 months post-training, they will have sustainable jobs or create self-employment.
The number of beneficiaries targeted is 500 persons. Post-training 300 will have access to internship opportunities and on-the-job training. Around 45% of the 300 will have sustainable jobs or create self-employment in the green sector.
Moreover, young green professionals will support sustainable and climate-resilient local economies, contribute to the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis development, and address irregular migration’s root causes.

Budget

Cerath will use the donations for:

  • Allowances to cover the trainees’ basic needs during training, internships and on-the-job coaching to prevent dropout.
  • Learning tours, workshops and networking activities for beneficiaries.
  • Establishing a green fund (called “EGSOP-Fund”) for the 10 winners among trainees who will pitch their green business plan. The winners will receive part of the fund as a starting capital, as especially green entrepreneurs lack grant opportunities.

This requires a budget of GHS 50,000 (or €7,209).

The training on employability and entrepreneurship to 500 youths, women and/or returnee migrants in the Ahanta West Municipality and the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis is sponsored by the European Union through the SNV Netherlands in Ghana. The training adopts a participatory and experiential approach which stimulates commitment and active participation of trainees. Besides, trainees are also linked to internships and job placement, or receive support in developing self-employment opportunities. The project was designed to be demand-driven incorporating the specific needs of the beneficiaries.
