About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

This service is aimed at ending or reducing the unemployment in our communities and country at large.Before I came up with this organization, I considered three factors, which is, crime among youths and I believe the reason behind terrorist and other crimes in Africa is due to the unemployed youth.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

We have identified our problem and our solution is getting skillful youth to work with and train them in producing products for the bigger markets to generate income.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

This solution differs from other solutions since it brings people with different backgrounds, identify their potentials, improve them and train them using modern technology to produce products from different sectors i.e. (vocational and technological education, farming, e..t.c). In terms of vocational education, we currently have three individuals who we trained to make an African cloth called the smock but this time in a different way to suit the fashion trend. Finally, we have about 7 acres of land where we are cultivating pineapples, cucumbers which we want to make pineapple and cucumber chips by dehydrating them to meet the demands of diabetics in the society.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Currently, the vocational aspect of our organization is producing ladies and men clothes but on order basis and we are able to get at least 70-80 orders a week. With our current trend of dresses, the demand is high and the secret behind the demand is due to its affordability. With time and available resources, we believe our clothes will rise to compete with bigger industries since we offer according to what customers want and deliver it to them anywhere, anytime.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

Six years from now, our products will be across Ghana and West Africa as a whole and since its an independent organization with its own policies, our products would always be of best quality and affordable. As time changes, so do the market and since we believe in customer satisfaction, we would use new and advance skills to improve our products.
Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

Our solution financial sustainability depends on our clients. This is because, our products are on order basis and the more order we get, the more we have an increasing income. Also, we would secure our resources by producing quality services.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There are people addressing unemployment in Ghana,some of them include Blue skies LTD e.t.c but what differs our from theirs is the fact that we utilize the skills of individuals and train them to perfect it and given them the necessary support to use it to provide quality products unlike others who just use them and such individuals have no say since they don't know how to single handed provide those products.
Team

Founding Story

I completed Senior High School in 2012 with a very good results. I had admission into University of Ghana to study Bsc. Information Studies and History but I did not want to go since it was not what I wanted to study. My parents forced me to attend university.During my second year, I dropped out of the university because I did not still like what I was studying. I decided to start this organization when I saw many graduates lack jobs and decided to opt for fraud and other criminal activities. It was difficult but with the help of some friends, my dream is now becoming a reality.

Team

I am the CEO of my organization and we have the financial management who takes care of our financial records. Also, we have the enrollment team, which I am part. Our duty here is to look for many youth to enroll them in this organization. We also have social marketers who advertise our products on social platforms.
