Women Empowerment initiative
Notice: Test mode is enabled. While in test mode no live donations are processed.
Women constitute a large percentage of the poor in many African societies. Thus, the empowerment of women is crucial for eradicating poverty at large. Accessibility to education, jobs and attaining financial stability will break the cycle of poverty and at the same time contribute immensely to the growth of the country´s economy.
We provide Women with loans to start businesses and mentor them in the process. Half of the lone is paid back in installments six months after the loan has been granted.
We plan on building Skill Training Centers, where women in neighboring communities and the community we are planted in could get trained in different skills such as Tailoring, Fabric design, Accessories design, Farming, IT, etc. Beneficiaries of our women empowerment initiative will be paired with a mentor who will guide them on the path to success.
We also plan on partnering with local Artisan Businesses that share our passion for issues affecting women to help create dignified jobs for women and also develop their businesses through fair trade and empowering them to grow sustainably.
