Project Description

Introduction

The TOT (Training of Trainers) project started in 2003 with help from Kianda Foundation and the European Union. The aim was for women in Ngarariga, Riara and Ngong to become promoters and owners of micro-businesses so they could better support their families. since then 1,297 women have benefitted from the programme. Most of them are aged between 25 and 50 though some are older than 60. These are grandmothers who have taken over the upbringing of their grandchildren because the parents have died of AIDS, so they need to start earning money again.

The programme is taught by women who are studying business or economics at the university.
