Ethiopia Women's Empowerment Project
We have partnered with our friends at Women's WorldWide Web to support our Ethiopia Women's Empowerment Program. This partnership will allow our advocates in France and the US to make tax-free donations to the program. Through the Women’s Empowerment Program, W4 field partner Tirzah provides business training and seed capital for women from Entoto Mountain. There are 30 women in each class and the program’s classes run for ten months of the year, with the remaining two months devoted to accepting newcomers for the next year of classes. Women are invited to join the program based on need: all are impacted by HIV/AIDS and the majority of them are single mothers without any formal job skills, struggling to resist the disease and raise healthy children.
