Empowering Female Heads of Households – UN Women
The leadership training model provided these women with the opportunity to speak about their circumstances as single women heading households, through which they were able to come together as a strong collective. The leadership sessions paved the way for a conversation regarding another pressing issue on the lack of female representation, not only in decision-making but also in contributing to or engaging in initiatives surrounding peacebuilding and social cohesion.
Economic Empowerment of Female Heads of Households – UN Women
The economic empowerment model focused on a sequence of training – including product development, financial literacy, business management, business planning, marketing techniques, and use of technology to further develop or upscale their businesses. The trained women entrepreneurs were then supported to develop business plans. The best 180 business plans from all 03 districts were selected through a competitive process and they were provided with in-kind support to set up sustainable and resilient businesses.
