In the bid for WAVE as an organization to scale, reach as many people as possible and be financially sustainable, WAVE partners with organizations whose mission and vision align, train their staff, who in turn go on to train other recipients called “step downs”.

This is done to increase the number of employable youths in the society.

Why we do what we do

60% of youth in West Africa are unemployed. This leaves Africa at a critical tipping point in the region’s prospect for economic growth and development

Leading to youth unemployment

Across the regions academic qualifications are completely not reflective of life skills such as problem-solving and critical thinking

WAVE strives to provide young people with opportunities to learn skills and obtain experience that will make them work ready
