Safi Life has begun a new partnership with the nonprofit organization Resonate, a Kigali-based social enterprise that unlocks the leadership potential of women and girls in East Africa. Resonate partners with groups and organizations providing educational, vocational, and entrepreneurial programs, and integrates its leadership workshops into those programs. Through this approach, they ensure the beneficiaries have the confidence and skills to turn opportunities into action.
Together, Safi Life and Resonate will be hosting a multi-day leadership workshop for the women and girls of Safi Life and our NDASHOBOYE project. After these 2-8 day leadership programs, Resonate has seen the following results: 60% take on leadership roles, 36% start businesses, and 43% gain a promotion in academic or professional advancement. We are so excited to see where this journey takes our scholarship recipients, and are so proud to be working with a like-minded organization.
Safi Life is also beginning a conversation with a fair trade company to potentially create and sell beanies for them internationally, which would then allow our graduates to become even more self-sufficient with worldwide customers.
We are always looking for ways to partner alongside organizations with similar goals in mind, so if you or someone you know may be looking for a fair trade partnership we are happy to learn more!
Thank you for your consideration and support of all of Safi Life's missions.
