Summary

Help Halt Poverty raise $3,427 and prepare women for successful transitions into workforce by supporting their progression from school to work, and reducing barriers to their labor market entry. Most malagasy women in today's workforce face deficits in the education and skills they need to be employable and progress in their careers. Once they have entered the workforce, they face difficulty in securing jobs that pay a living wage and offer social protections

Challenge

Employer surveys consistently reveal concerns about the lack of certain types of skills among potential employees, especially soft skills such as communication and teamwork, noting the constraints this imposes on business performance. In the context of this skills deficit, young people, mostly women are taking longer to transition from school to work. Once young people do enter the workforce, their quality of employment may be informal or characterized by a lack of protections

Solution

Tourism could become the sector for people seeking a way out of poverty. This entails, offering increased and equitable access to quality technical and vocational education (interventions target women and girls, with disabilities, and other marginalized groups). Offering training and small business assistance combined, where possible, with complementary services, such as access to finance

Long-Term Impact

Thanks to the continued support and commitment of donors and partners, we will continue to unlock people's potential to rise out of poverty and to provide for their families' well-being. Youth benefit by gaining new skills, and access to resources, ideally improving their employment opportunities, reducing the length of their job searches, increasing their wages, and raising their performance on-the-job. Employers gain access to a more skilled workforce and improving business performance
