The Challenges

Women in rural African communities play a central and critical role in community development and are often viewed as the key to community development.

While they are often the key to developing industries, there are few resources to help them plan and develop ideas for micro-entrepreneurship.

In addition to developing their ideas, a secondary goal of building a community of young women leader from around the continent.

As such the blended learning program mixes virtual session with self-study, space for learner uploads of assignments and virtual pitch labs. ​

Learners have been highly engaged, with almost 90% average score and completion rate, made new friends and have begun to develop a community and deploy their idea into practice, generating employment, and reinvigorating communities. ​
