LifeAid provides training for our women. We provide new skills in a variety of subjects that will enable empowering the women to start their own small business or join existing businesses. This allows them to bring added value and start earning for themselves and their families. Training in Cake making/decorations, catering, hairdressing, sewing are provided and often lead to employment. Now our women are using their talents and this gives them dignity and self-respect.
We also provided financial assistance in the form of a non interest loan to help set up businesses. This scheme has proved most helpful in getting women started without worrying about finances, a reasonable monthly repayment is arranged once the business takes off.
