This intervention gives the women income to provide food, healthcare & education for their families, and to take better care of the orphans under their care and also people living with HIV.


We train women on appropriate technology, and provide business training as well as start up loans and access to ICT to market products.By doing this they reduce poverty and provide food, medicine & education for over 100 families in the community.
