More than 80% of the workforce in Ghana is employed by the informal sector. The objective of this innovative program is to strengthen capacity building and training in this sector. This will be achieved by supporting the relevant trade associations and by capacity building of master craft persons. Strengthening and professionalizing the traditional apprenticeship system is another major activity. As a result of the program, the development path of small and medium enterprises will be supported.
