1.    Background

The project “Local Economic Empowerment for Women, Youth and Vulnerable groups through CSOs and LAs concerted action in Ghana – LEEWYV” has been developed in 2018 by VIS – Volontariato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo in partnership with DBYN (Don Bosco Youth Network), BMA (Berekum Municipal Assembly) and DCM (Dormaa Central Municipality Assembly) to promote sustainable development in Brong Ahafo Region (BAR), through the support to the creation of effective mechanisms of engagement, collaboration and cooperation in leading sustainable development processes between Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Local Authorities (LAs).

This collaboration will affect life conditions of BAR’s population, especially the ones of vulnerable youth and women who are candidates for irregular and unsafe migration; their employment and sources of income will be supported by innovative and environmentally friendly economic activities. VIS and DBYN have been carrying out various activities in BAR for the past 3 years, with the main purpose of promoting sustainable development and tackling the phenomenon of irregular migration that may lead to the non-respect of basic human rights.

The target group of the proposed action will be the members of CSOs and LAs of BAR who will be empowered by VIS and DBYN through trainings to become real development actors for the Region. The action will also benefit vulnerable young people and women, who will have the opportunity to be trained in sustainable and environmentally friendly economic activities and be supported technically and financially to start their own business or find an employment.

The “LEEWYV” project is part of the Stoptratta program (www.stoptratta.org), implemented through the establishment of a network led by the Salesians of Don Bosco and VIS. Its goal is to fight human trafficking, informing and sensitizing the populations and communities in the countries of origin/transit about the risks of the journey to Europe. At the same time, it aims at helping improve the socio-economic conditions of those same countries in order to counteract and/or to reduce the underlying motivations of the individual and family migration project, as well as promoting regular migration.
