Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8)

At Enkare Oltau Foundation, we recognize the critical role that decent work and sustainable economic growth play in improving the lives of individuals and communities. Guided by Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8), we are committed to promoting inclusive economic opportunities and empowering vulnerable populations for a brighter future.

Our Initiatives for Decent Work and Economic Growth

  • Self-Employment Skills for Youth: We believe in equipping young people and vulnerable individuals with the skills they need to create their own economic opportunities. Our programs provide training in various self-employment skills, including soap making, mat making, hairdressing, phone repairs, and baking.
  • Finance Management Training: Financial literacy is a cornerstone of economic independence. We offer finance management training to help young people and vulnerable individuals effectively manage their earnings, make informed financial decisions, and plan for their future.
  • Digital Marketing Training: In today's digital age, online presence is crucial for small-scale businesses. We empower youth and women entering small-scale businesses with digital marketing skills, enabling them to reach a broader audience and grow their enterprises.
  • Job Market Readiness Skills: Our commitment extends to preparing individuals for the job market. We provide training in job market readiness skills, including CV writing, salary negotiation, and networking, to ensure that our beneficiaries are well-prepared for employment opportunities.
  • Hands-On Skills for Employment: We believe in practical skills development. Our initiatives include hands-on training in first aid and IT management, giving our volunteers an edge in the job market and equipping them to contribute meaningfully to their communities.
  • Linking Youth to Corporate Opportunities: We connect youth to corporate exchange and volunteer programs, offering job shadowing opportunities and corporate volunteer events. These experiences expose them to the work environment and expand their career horizons.
  • Youth Engagement in Policy Formulation: We facilitate youth engagement in national policy formulation platforms, ensuring that their voices are heard in matters of governance and economic development. Our aim is to empower young people to shape their own future.
