Pathways for Sustainable Employment for Women and Youth

RAINS is implementing the PASEWAY project in partnership with Plan International and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic and Development Corporation (BMZ). The PASEWAY project seeks to empower young people with skills to find formal decent employment or set up their own businesses in the construction sector.

RAINS is targeting to reach 1,200 beneficiaries in the Tamale Metropolis and Sagnarigu Municipality of Northern region.

The PASEWAY Project will support young people under four different areas:

  • Technical and Soft Skills (for unskilled youth with career interest in the construction sector)
  • Soft Skills Only (targeting youth people with formal training who are searching for formal employment in the construction sector)
  • Certification of prior knowledge and Soft Skills (targeting youth with skills acquired in the informal training spaces with no formal certification of skills)
  • Support with the formalization of Youth led Construction and Business Development Services (targeting young construction entrepreneurs)

To achieve this, a combination of various approaches are being pursued that include taking into account the technical and social requirements of employers in the value chain of the construction sector.

PASEWAY contributes substantially to the realization of SDG 1, 8, 9 and 11 by enhancing the skills of young people to improve their livelihood and participate effectively in creating sustain growth and society in Ghana.
