(Ghana, Rwanda) AmaliTech is a social business that provides employment pathways in the ICT sector to young graduates in Sub-Saharan Africa by offering free ICT training. The organization has made a commitment to Decent Jobs for Youth on providing advanced IT training and employment pathways for young graduates in Ghana and Rwanda.

After successful completion, trainees will have employment opportunities in one of AmaliTech’s service centres.

The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Decent Jobs for Youth was launched in 2016 as a UN system-wide effort, focusing on the youth employment challenge that is central to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It has emerged as a global, multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together governments, social partners, the private sector, youth and civil society organizations, and others. They work together to share knowledge, leverage resources and take action at country and regional level, to support young people in accessing decent work and productive employment worldwide.
