The project’s target for the new cycle has a target of 500 participants, and we are set to make it happen.

Programme Courses:

  1. Developing a Technology Strategy & Strategic Use of Productivity Tools
  1. Website Design & Management for Entrepreneurs

Targeted beneficiaries of the program will be aspiring and existing female entrepreneurs aged 18 and up, as was the case in the previous cycle.

The major goals of the program are to:

  • To equip 500 aspiring or existing female entrepreneurs with technology skills and knowledge to improve their business productivity and profitability.
  • Reduce the digital gender gap by increasing the number of women who are comfortable using technology
