Promoting sustainable livelihoods and empowerment with young migrants in Ghana
Our project aims to generate new knowledge about the livelihoods of young migrants in Ghana. In Ghana, one fifth of the population are aged between 15-24 years, many of whom are migrants who face a number of social and economic challenges. By working directly with young people, our projects aims to:
- Understand better the perspectives of young migrants in Ghana – including the things that matter most to them and their livelihoods
- Identify how social and cultural conditions and inequalities shape young migrants’ perspectives and experiences
The outcomes of our work with young people will be used to develop the understanding of empowerment in youth-centred approaches, including how these understandings can inform sustainable policy approaches that enhance positive youth futures.
