Our women’s empowerment program is designed to show the women that they are not alone and there are people who care about supporting them, emotionally and mentally. Through this program you will be in the grassroots stage of helping and building up communities through educating and supporting women and their families.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
You will be involved in the day to day life and culture of not only the women you area helping to mentor but also their family and community. A focus of this program is to help build confidence, independence and affect social change not only for the women but also everything they are involved in. This is a very hands on program and is both emotionally and mentally very rewarding.
WHAT THE PROGRAM ACHIEVES
While you will be mentoring only one person, the effects of this transcend not only her, and her family, but also the whole community. The difference you can make will help empower and encourage these women to make a real difference locally.
Some of the things you will make a difference with;
– Building self confidence in order to flourish in the community
– Educating women in life skills
– Helping your mentee become more productive and successful
– Providing a support network and process for when times get hard
– Organisational skills for the opportunity to build a better future
