Are you between 25 – 35 years? Do you believe that your generation can be the catalyst for job creation? Have you made positive change in your neighborhood or community? Are you ready to be part of a greater community? Do you reside in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, or Togo? We want to hear from you.
GhanaThink in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy in Ghana is organizing TechCamp West Africa in Accra, Ghana from November 14 – 16, 2014 to address the primary concern of youth in the region — “Unemployment and Job Creation.” Our objective as solution seekers is to create and develop a lasting network of change agents to increase regional communication, coordination, and ultimately trade across West Africa. Together with private sector experts, the 100 selected participants will explore obstacles to small business growth and share the best practices for private and social entrepreneurs for solving regional challenges through idea-sharing, collaboration, partnership and learning. Intrigued? Apply to be part of TechCamp West Africa at www.techcampwestafrica.org before August 15.
Come and share, explore, and build with us at TechCamp West Africa. For more information, see www.techcampwestafrica.org or contact GhanaThink via Twitter @GhanaThink or US Embassy Ghana @USEmbassyGhana
Dozens of TechCamps around the world have brought together representatives from the private sector and civil society to seek solutions to community challenges. They are unique in that after the event is over, civil society voices are connected to global networks of technologists, sponsors and digital volunteers interested in helping implement solutions.
