They are Ready. Give them the opportunity.

In a nearly-forgotten corner of West Africa called Guinea-Bissau, two out of every three people survive on less than $2 each day. Yet, the young people who call this country home are ready to work for a better future. All they need is the opportunity.

WAVS vocational schools in Guinea-Bissau train more than 300 students each year in courses including welding, computer basics, and foreign languages — equipping them with skills that translate into jobs.

More than 75% of recent graduates have either started working or are continuing to study. These graduates are now able to use their skills to provide for themselves and their families — for a lifetime.

Join us on May 23, 2023 at Dine & Discover West Africa: Seattle to help create a world where everyone has the opportunity to work for a brighter future — no matter who they are or where they live.
