The foundation promotes women empowerment through projects and trainings which help women improve their lively hood. This has been achieved through the Training Of Trainers (TOT)program.
Training of trainers is a business setup programme for rural women run by Kenyan university students. The students deliver Micro-finance and entrepreneurship trainings which helps women acquire skills that will help them start and manage their businesses professionally. The programme involves real life situations that the women can relate to around their areas. The University students monitor the women for a period of 6 months to help them through the process of starting their business, marketing their goods and services, solving problems that may arise, study initiatives and evaluate possibilities for future expansion.
The women who attend the training value it highly because they learn how to run their businesses professionally and improve their standards of living.
The following are the benefits the women get after the training:
- They are able to lead their lives with dignity and freedom.
- The training adds to their self-esteem.
