Through ERFA support , a series of trainings have been offered to women through the SILC Project at partner project Mirror of Hope in Nairobi.
The training and economic empowerment project supports women living in Kibera, where the trainings have been instrumental in changing the mindset on business. As a result more women continues to start businesses as a way of sustaining their lives. The project has given women a platform during meetings for them to exchange business ideas and as a result, more women who solely depended on casual jobs and their spouses for financial support have deviated from that.
The SILC project to date has been able to reach over to 150 women with different trainings. Of the 150 women currently in SILC and have participated in business trainings, 121 are in business.Read more about this project here
