Women’s Economic Empowerment

Women's empowerment

Due to many women expressing their desire to start a business and be independent, we started the Women’s Empowerment Program in 2020.  Six women were provided grants to start microenterprises in the first year. One was provided with merchandise to sell. This program will provide training and mentorship to participants upon scaling up. For rural areas, we are developing the Women’s Goat Program to help alleviate poverty, hunger, and food insecurity. We have already started providing training in animal husbandry.
