Business Formalization in Ghana's Construction Industry
Young female artisans face a myriad of challenges in their quest to secure appropriate documentation for their businesses and have access to decent work opportunities within the construction sector. Some women who seek to formalize their businesses are sexually harassed, while others are defrauded or forced to offer monetary, sexual and other favours in order to overcome the hurdles that characterize business formalization and certification.
This project provides business formalization and development support to young female artisans in their pursuit to legitimize their participation and decision-making power in the traditionally male-dominated construction industry. Through knowledge sharing, skills enhancement, and coaching and mentorship opportunities, the YoFeB-4G project will strengthen the networks of young women within the construction sector to ensure a safe, secure and healthy work environment for them.
