HOW YEFL CONTRIBUTEs TO A BETTER WORLD
At YEFL we carry out seven main missions with young people in order to help them integrate into working life, as well as to develop themselves. Each of these mission is designed and undertaken with care for the welfare of the youth, which is our priority. These missions beyond just Tamale and Ghana, contributes to the world through the SDGs.
The SDGs were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 SDGs are integrated, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
In this article, we will show, through the analysis of each of our missions, what specific role we play in contributing to a world without poverty, violence, and discrimination against women and girls. Simply, a better world.
YEFL-GHANA as an organization believes in the economic empowerment of young people hence, together with our partners, we support young people to acquire vocational & entrepreneurial skills through our bootcamp manual to start up, maintain and grow their business whiles promoting
youth driven social enterprises. This contributes to three SDGs, i.e. Goal 1, No Poverty, specifically, target 1.2 which indicates that, by 2030, reduce at least half the proportion of men, women and children of all ages living in poverty in all dimensions according to national definitions. We also facilitate the creation of avenues that offers youth in our operational areas quality education, contributing to Goal 4, Quality Education specifically, target 4.4. This goal aims to substantially increase the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship. Finally, our economic empowerment pillar contributes to Goal 8 by providing decent Jobs and economic growth. The goal is to achieve full and productive employment and decent work for all women and men, including for young people and persons with disabilities, and equal pay for work of equal value.
