We are building a Ready For Work movement of educators who are committed to developing 21st-century global competencies in young people and employers who are committed to levelling the playing field for young people through more inclusive hiring focused on competencies.
To this end, we need a LOGO that represents and communicates this objective
WAVE is solving what is arguably the biggest challenge on the continent: youth unemployment. In West Africa, 40-85% of youth, more than 50 million, are unemployed or underemployed. Meanwhile, job creation in the region is on the rise. The disconnect between work-ready youth and the employment market must be bridged. The READY FOR WORK movement will help us reach our goal of levelling the playing field through rewiring education to employment system.
WAVE is a vocational education model that up-skills youth to fill stable jobs that transform their incomes thereby converting Africa’s youth from demographic liabilities to “demographic dividends”:
We connect young, driven individuals to jobs that help improve their income and in turn help businesses sustain and grow.
