Having realized that women have a very big role to play in the development of their communities and the nation at large, we started the “Train a woman, train a Nation” campaign, where we train women in different aspects empowering them to be productive.
We empower women through trainings; equipping them to be financially independent by teaching them income generating skills like catering, tailoring, hair dressing, hand crafts making, agriculture for food and money and also through life skills trainings aimed at raising women’s personal esteem through self discovery programs like proud to be a woman, encouraging women to participate in community based programs initiated by both Government and Community Based Organizations and to take on positions of responsibility in the same.
Women in Africa have responsibilities culturally attached to them and they are the ones who spend most of the time with the children, and they interact more with the community and the environment than the men. We believe that women empowerment is a key thing in dealing with socio-economic as well as environmental challenges to achieve sustainable development.
