 The Youth Inclusive Entrepreneurial Development Initiative for Employment (YIEDIE) is 5-year program designed to create economic opportunities in Ghana’s construction sector for disadvantaged youth, implemented by Global Communities with The MasterCard Foundation. YIEDIE will directly reach at least 23,700 of these youth with training in technical, life and/or entrepreneurship skills leading to employment.

The project will apply an integrated youth-led market-systems model to improve the capacity of youth and service providers across the value chain. Youth will benefit from having job opportunities and higher income. Sector stakeholders such as private firms, financial service providers, training institutions and government are expected to benefit from improved coordination and capacity.
