What have we achieved so far?

Empower Generation (doing business as Pollinate Group) and local implementing partner Kalpavriksha have a detailed work plan in place to recruit 50 women. 

Our recruitment process involves community engagement with women and their families and wider communities to ensure each women is wholistlically supported. We will undertake baseline studies on current income, skills, confidence, decision-making power and leadership upon joining the program.

We will deliver training in business skills, cash management, sales and marketing, gender and empowerment. The 50 women will also receive a line of credit to access products from our range of high quality life improving products including solar lights, solar fans, cook stoves, mosquito nets and sanitary pads. They will also receive on-the-job and refresher training, mentoring and support to help identify and overcome any barriers they may face.

We expect our women entrepreneurs to gain increased income, financial independence, confidence and respect at home and in the community.

What next?

We received news recently that we have been selected as one of 7 finalists by 100 Women to secure funding towards empowering these 50 women to lead their communities out of poverty. We will find out in the coming month if we have been successful.
