BUSINESS SKILLS TRAINING

Through our six-month business training programme, survivors gain skills on how to set-up and run a business. They gain skills in cookery, fashion design, bread-making, bead making, make-up application, poultry-keeping, self-confidence, savings, investments and leadership skills. They are also taught the benefits of self-care.

As part of our training, women and young people gain skills in money management, budgeting, and the benefits of savings.

In 2014, we supported women with seed capital to establish a goat farm and poultry in Nigeria. We believe that when women are self-sufficient and empowered economically, they are better able to support their children, families, and communities. This programme teaches the benefits of active citizenship and presents opportunity to give back to the community.
