Impact

This project will equip and impact 1,200 poor women with meaningful skills and technology<br />to increase production, generate more income for children education,<br />shelter,health and etc. thereby alleviating poverty. Skills acquired can be<br />transferred to others in and around the community eventually contributing to<br />the development in their communities. It will also offer them opportunity as a<br />cooperateive groups to  received micro-loans (small amounts of money<br />with a small interest rate attached), allowing them to establish or expand<br />businesses relating to sanitation and hygiene. This helps them generate more<br />income and in turn offer micro-loans to their members, for everyday basics<br />(like food and medicine) or to establish their own businesses – fuelling even<br />more income generation and helping more women gain financial independence.
