About EQWIP HUBs
EQWIP HUBs is a new way of approaching long-term sustainable development.
It’s a network of 17 youth innovation spaces called ‘EQWIP HUBs,’ where youth – especially women – come together to develop market-relevant skills, build networks, learn from mentors, and access technology. Located in Bolivia, Ghana, Indonesia, Peru, Senegal and Tanzania, they are places where the passions and determination of young people are transformed into the confidence and abilities that will allow them to access employment or entrepreneurship and take control of their own futures.
Together, we’re on a mission to propel 100,000 #YouthForward by 2020.
EQWIP HUBs is generously funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada.
