According to the United Nations 2007-2008 Human Development report, Sierra Leone ranks as # 177 (last place) in Human Development Index. The UN estimates unemployment to be about 65 percent in Sierra Leone. Tens of thousands of youths and adults struggle to find a meaningful existence and are living below the poverty line. They are exposed to the temptations of resorting to a lifestyle of vices and destructive occupations. They desperately need help and a viable path to self-sufficiency.
This project provides foundational training in business management and entrepreneurship, and business capital to selected women participants to enable them to start or expand their businesses, become self-reliant and also employ others.
The project will enable individuals and small businesses to move from barely making enough to meet their basic needs (living from hand to mouth) to a point where they will expand, provide employment, and contribute to national development.
