The YIEDIE project, a part of the Youth Forward Initiative in collaboration with Mastercard Foundation, is focused on transitioning economically disadvantaged young people to find quality employment or start their own businesses. Mrs Vera Kafui Mills-Odoi, YIEDIE Project Director, said the fair was to stimulate discussions around the need for comprehensive support systems to complement investments in skills development. She said research reveals that skills continues to be a contributory factor to youth unemployment, particularly in the construction sector, adding that many who entered the labour market after school were ill-equipped in basic numeracy, communication and workplace skills.
