As part of their field work at Trax Ghana, the students will review Trax Ghana and Tools for Self Reliance (TFSR), UK partnership project.
The project started in 2007 and was intended to reduce youth unemployment in local communities through skills development training that will translate into sustainable jobs, incomes and improved livelihoods. The first phase of the project covers business and entrepreneurship training, life skills, literacy and numeracy trainings. Following the first phase, project beneficiaries were attached to well-resourced master craftsperson in various communities for intensive vocational training in their area of interest. Upon graduation, each trainee receives a certificate for participation, refurbished tools kit and seed money to establish a workshop for income generation. Each graduate then recruits at least two apprentices for transfer of skills and knowledge leading to the creation of more job opportunities and expansion of the local economy.
