In order to continue our "financial literacy" mission, we partnered with Plan International to support the "Strengthening Women Entrepreneurs in Egypt" project with a $30,000 personal donation over the next 3 years & Global Affairs Canada is offering a 5:1 match, bringing the total impact we make to $180,000.
Strengthening Women Entrepreneurs in Egypt is empowering young people in Giza, Egypt to gain the knowledge and skills they need to achieve long-term economic success.
With the first year of the project completed, we are very excited to share with you the groundwork that has been laid for the activities of this impactful initiative. The activities currently underway will help:
Facilitate a mentoring and leadership program for 725 women
Train 20 women’s rights organizations, associations, and networks on advocacy
Provide start-up kits and entrepreneurship funding to 725 women
This project will allow for sustainable, long-term economic prosperity and autonomy for the women of Giza.
