Women’s Economic Empowerment

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

This pillar focuses on grassroots women and women survivors of conflict and gender based violence to promote sustainable livelihood management through offering life skills and entrepreneurship; Providing seed grant to facilitate start-up activities; Linkages to financial institutions, partners and donors; Following-up and psycho-social support.

Visible Impacts: There is a significant number women groups that have emerged out of the women’s bunges who are taking advantage of devolved and affirmative funds in the Counties we operate. This is making women more economically endowed and financially independent, hence reducing cases of gender based violence and also lifting the standards of life in the communities. With this trend, the degree of poverty will gradually reduce as more and more women engage in income generating activities to create wealth.
