WOMEN’S SMALL BUSINESS INITIATIVE
Today our education mission extends to women, some from the Maasai culture, seeking ways to earn money not linked to favorable weather conditions. Most recently, these women, already strained by untenable burdens to provide for their families amid social or cultural restrictions, face even more dire challenges because of drought.
Working through community officers, EdPowerment has committed to helping two specific groups from different villages to develop the production and local marketing of two soap products: liquid and bar. Our mentorship encompasses financial and organizational guidance, product training through SIDO (Small Industries Development Organization), Moshi, and ongoing monitoring and supervision. Independent sustainability of these projects is the goal… with the hope of expansion to include other products.
