Why it matters

  • According to the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS), about 1.74 million (13.4 percent) Ghanaians of working age are unemployed.

  • Unemployment has become a major issue in the country and the very few people who escape it are underemployed.

  • In 2023, the situation of unemployment can be worse. The Ghanaian government has frozen hiring in all public services due to the global economic crisis that has affected the country's budget.

  • At NCVO Ghana, We believe nonprofit organizations have the grassroot network and the needed insight to respond to this challenge by creating dignified employment opportunities in their operating communities.  

  • We believe we can empower non-profit organizations within our network to take up massive projects in agriculture by establishing community farms and paying workers a dignified wage.

  • Beyond this, we can further empower several nonprofit organizations to identify local problems and turn them into social enterprises that create jobs.
