Empowering a Woman is Empowering a Nation
The young mothers here in the photo, are learning skills on how to start, grow and sustain businesses which will earn them income to take care of their small kids and themselves. One of them, Margaret says “I want to be an outstanding salon owner and employ other young mothers like me!”
Pauline Ngari- CEO of YTEDC, encourages the young mothers that starting a business is possible even with the little Merry-Go-Round cash from their groups. Those who had already started businesses shared their experiences on how the YTEDC training has opened up their minds to identify the many opportunities around them. “The training has given me confidence and self-belief. Before the training, I did not believe that babysitting for other mothers would be a good business opportunity. However, after the YTEDC training I saw a business opportunity and grabbed it”, said Caroline from Upendo women group – Deep-sea, Nairobi County.
