A world where every young african have the opportunity to become what they imagine
West Africa Vocational Education (WAVE) is a Nigerian-based social enterprise that addresses widespread youth unemployment in West Africa by training underserved but self-motivated youth with industry relevant work skills and crucial employability skills.
We foster the inclusion of young people in the workforce through our ‘‘hire for attitude, train for skill’’ philosophy that focuses on evaluating EQ and soft skills. We help them move from subsistence farming and urban street hawking to more meaningful and promising jobs.
In WAVE’s 5 years of existence, WAVE has helped thousands of people gain the knowledge and skills necessary to live and work in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world by offering the most comprehensive, relevant, and valuable exchange programs available.
