The Ghanaian-European Centre for Jobs, Migration and Development is offering intensive training courses in rural regions. The “Sprinter Project” supports young people and returnees with their new start in the Ghanaian job market.
The lack of long-term jobs in Ghana causes internal and irregular migration. Many young people leave rural areas for the cities, where they expect to find better job opportunities. Some of them then decide to head off for Europe if they don’t end up finding a job there.
The Ghanaian-European Centre for Jobs, Migration and Development (GEC) has organised intensive training courses for technical and vocational training (TVET) in the Central Region, Greater Accra Region and Volta Region. These training courses are also known as the “Sprinter Project”. Its aim is to offer young Ghanaians the prospect of quick employment.
