Year 1 Project Timeline

Jul 24

Jul 25

Overview

This project provides a great opportunity to assist vulnerable women-led families with vocational training. The first year will identify, train, encourage and empower 80 poor families in nutritional farming practices. Training will include practical demonstrations, hands-on experience, business and character training. Year 2 will progress to business plans for each family, support, mentoring and start-up loans (approx. $200) to begin their own business based on the knowledge they have acquired. Families will be closely followed up and loans will be repaid for future families. Participants will provide 10% of the capital required to buy materials for the business to ensure commitment and buy-in.

Why support this

This project doesn’t just provide one-off training and then move on. The families are part of a program that spans two years where our partner walks them through the skills needed for income generation. Participants are carefully selected for suitability and commitment and are led through a well-managed, staged process that builds on learning from previous programs completed with Entrust. Community leaders will assist with identifying vulnerable, eligible families and will provide venues for meeting points and training workshops.
