Partnership with Kenya YWCA Reaching 5,000 Women
Rosemary Williams with Irene Kizito, General Secretary of the KenyaYWCA
On International Women's Day our Executive Director, Rosemary Williams met with Irene Kizito, General Secretary of the Kenya YWCA, in New York and scheduled the 2013 Financial Empowerment Training. Now, we're all working hard to make it happen.
We will train 30 facilitators, who will return to their seven YWCA branches across Kenya equipped with skills and materials to train local women in taking control of their economic destiny. The Kenya YWCA will supervise and monitor the local trainers to ensure that subsequent workshops take place and that training goals are met. During the first year 700 Kenyan women will complete the first stage of the Kenya YWCA's Faith Based Economic Empowerment Program. This program is part of a larger strategic plan to educate 5,000 women over the next three years. Kenya YWCA Website
