Empowering Communities Through Vocational Training

Skills development is a key driver of economic growth and Vocational training plays a pivotal role in empowering individuals and communities. 

Inspire Action is dedicated to building the capacity of community members through vocational training hence the introduction of the ‘Promotion of Vocational Oriented Training’ (PVOT) project. 

This project will span over a period of 12 months and train over 500 people in various areas including fashion design, wig making, barbering and detergent making. 

Inspire Action Mission

Inspire Action is a newly established Non – Governmental Organization committed to fostering sustainable development by providing vocational training to community members. Our mission is to equip individuals with practical skills, which will enable them to secure better livelihoods and contribute meaningfully to their communities.

The vocational training will focus on skill diversification because Inspire Action recognizes the importance of diverse skills in the job market. Through these programs, community members will be trained in various areas. 

Also, trainees will benefit from some level of Entrepreneurial Development. Inspire Action goes beyond traditional training by instilling entrepreneurial skills in participants. Workshops on business management, marketing, and financial literacy empower trainees to start their own ventures and become self-reliant.

Inspire Action recognizes that some community members may be faced with financial constraints and accessibility issues so the training will be free to all underprivileged persons only. However, other persons who want to benefit from the training will have to pay a GHC500 fee.  

Program Background

Inspire Action is launching the pilot phase of this project in several fields such as fashion design, wig construction, barbering and detergent fabrication. 

Our aim is to reach out to the underprivileged members of our society such as orphans, persons living with disabilities, youths who cannot afford regular training schools, victims of human and sex trafficking, victims of gender-based violence, etc. 

This project is an opportunity to equip beneficiaries with the necessary skills and tools to foster economic security upon successful completion of the training either through employment opportunities on the free market or self-employment, thereby providing a certain level of economic stability to support their livelihoods. 

The project shall start with a twelve-month pilot phase where we aim to train over five hundred people, and then negotiate internships for hands-on experience for the trainees who successfully complete the courses. 

The trainees will be expected to pay a maximum subsidized training fee of not more than ghc500 to support the organization as Inspire Action has no outside funding from donors at this time. A quota of twenty-five per cent of each trainee intake shall be allocated to people with no proven source of income like orphans who shall be trained free of charge.
