Empowering Women in Industrial Trades in Northern Ghana.

Funded by Global Affairs Canada. Implemented by Alinea.

Building the economic well-being of women through industrial trades.

In rural northern Ghana, women often ask their husbands for consent to work in jobs where they earn money. At the same time, this region struggles to find skilled workers for industrial trades. In response, WEE-NORTH helps women join the workforce as welders, plumbers, carpenters, brick layers and electricians. These opportunities increase productivity, profitability and access to decent work for women. To overcome prevailing gender stereotypes and barriers, WEE-NORTH uses approaches that engage men in creating change in gender relations in their communities.
