Women Entrepreneurship Support and Training (WEST)
The role of women in Africa’s economic advancement justifies our determination to explore options for improving access to skill acquisition, business management trainings and financial facilities for women entrepreneurs.
We are poised to empower women at grassroots level for wealth creation by providing free and mobile hands-on training on skills that can easily be translated to businesses yielding daily income. The skill acquisition programmes are usually short courses, lasting between one day and two weeks.
We achieve sustainability for women entrepreneurship through provision of small scale startup tools, business mentoring, establishment of cooperative societies and linking the informal business settings to corporate businesses.
With improved financial capabilities, women are more likely to enroll their children in schools, provide build their businesses, create jobs, support their families and transform their communities.
