We offer a variety of programs to address critical needs — from income generating and savings activities to organic farming, food processing and nutrition.
Income Generating and Savings Activities
We have 186 women, many of them young moms and youth who are trying to rebuild their lives after suffering violence and rape, involved in a savings program. Each contributes a small amount, as much as they can, to a group savings plan which is dispursed to the member most in need, each month. For most, this is their only access to credit and gaining business training. Many have started their own small business, selling sugar cane, bananas, tomatoes, mandazi (pastry) and peanuts.
A new hotel management program has been started and 28 women have already benefited. They now hope to use their new skills to make their own bread and open their own food stalls.
We have also started organic farming and a food processing program.
