Ongoing Research Projects

IPAR is partnering with PASGR under the Funds from MasterCard foundation to implement a research project on “Young Women and Men’s Aspirations and Resilience : Prospects for Livelihoods, Employment, and Accountability before, during and beyond COVID–19”

This project is under the framework of a multi-country research project on youth aspirations, resilience, and adaptation being implemented in seven Sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries - Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, and Uganda. This project explores young men and women’s aspirations, adaptability, and resilience in Africa before, during and post COVID-19.

The aim of the study is to create a thorough understanding of young men’s and women’s aspirations regarding their future, from social, economic and other dimensions of life. The study further aims to unveil the consequences that the COVID-19 pandemic had on young men and women, including potential adjustments to their aspirations of the future
