Hello Ghana believes in giving sustainable opportunity rather than simple charity--this is achieved through our apprenticeship program. Our program pairs a Good Shepherd child between the ages of 13-18 with a local business owner in Ofaakor. We currently are partnered with 7 different Ghanaian businesses ranging from welding and carpentry, to beauty and hair care.
We allow each child to choose which realm of work they would like to study, then actively pair them with the business in question.
During their apprenticeship, they will not only learn responsibility in time and financial management, but also marketable skills which, more often than not, result in paid jobs.
The average cost to put one child through our apprenticeship program is $2,000 USD. To see how we are budgeting and our financial needs for our apprenticeships for 2018, check out our finances here.
