About this project

As we are all "sitting in the same boat" and there is also a "lockdown" in our project countries, the value of a cup of coffee can give real hope. 
What can 2.00 euros achieve?

If 12,500 people donate, for example, 2.00 Euros, then we have the sum for the training of 25 poor young people.
An extremely large number of young people in Ghana are hit hard. Born in poverty,
they have no chance to learn a profession - because an apprenticeship costs money.
These young people are often unemployed. At best they fight for survival as street vendors or day labourers. Without hope for a future, they are stuck in poverty.

Our professional training programme YAP breaks the cycle of poverty. In the Youth Apprenticeship Program (YAP) of Opportunity International Germany, unemployed young people in Ghana are given a three-year professional training course in a craft trade since 2009. The programme's graduates come from poor families: Young people who had to drop out of school early for lack of money or were unable to complete an apprenticeship after leaving school. Without professional training, these young people have no chance and no hope for a good future. Disadvantaged girls and young women are particularly affected.

The young people are apprenticed as hairdresser, tailor, car mechanic, metalworker, carpenter, bricklayer, welder or painter and many more. After completing their state-approved training, many are taken on by their trainers, find another job or start their own business with an interest-free start-up loan. Well trained, these young people have a real chance of a secure future.

Our goal by summer 2020
Provide 25 young people with this professional training

Participate with a "coffee donation" of 2 euros and then activate your network by passing on the campaign to friends, colleagues, the community or press/newspaper etc.

Together we can achieve a big goal with a small contribution. 

In this way we can help even more young people out of poverty in the future. Thanks a lot.

Of course, at the beginning of next year you will automatically receive a donation receipt from betterplace via email for your tax return.

Since 2009, we have so far enabled more than 2,100 poor young people to receive an apprenticeship. Our goal is that, together with you, we will give over 2,500 young people this chance by 2025!
