ENTERPRISING YOUTH - A KEY AREA
Empowering youth to become entrepreneurial individuals is a key focus area to us. For the past 6 years we have trained hundreds of youth and facilitated them to start up their own businesses.
Based on all the experience we have gathered within this area we have developed a new and innovative way of training youth to think and act entrepreneurial. We have done so in collaboration with our Danish partner organisation Ghana Friends and a researcher from VIA University in Denmark.
WHAT IS ENTREPRENEURSHIP TO US?
For us entrepreneurship goes beyond learning about the elements in starting up a business. For us it is a matter of learning the youth to have an entrepreneurial attitude that they can apply to many aspects of their life and improve it in general.
DO YOU WANT TO WORK WITH ENTREPRENEURSHIP?
We have developed a comprehensive training manual that takes you through the whole process of training entrepreneurs.
The methodology and exercises are easy to access and the resources needed to carry out the training can be found here along with other resources if you are interested in going deeper into the interesting field of entrepreneurship.
The materials are free to download and use, but can not be modified and published without our knowledge, so please contact us.
We are also available for advice and consultancies.
