Jane had tried various business ventures in the past, but she did not know how to keep her accounts or how to separate her business money from her daily family expenses. After participating in our entrepreneurial training through Foundation WA's partnership program in Kenya, she realized all the things that had gone wrong in her previous businesses. Using the new business tools she learned, she now could create a successful business around a skill she had learned a long time ago--making charcoal. Along with her husband, she now makes an eco-friendly charcoal that lasts longer, is cheaper, and does not produce smoke, which is best for the environment and people's health. They have already purchased a machine that compresses the product and have many customers, including several hotels in the area.
To help women like Jane, join us October 28th for our First Virtual Benefit to promote our entrepreneurial program in Kenya. The aim is to help these women generate the income needed to escape poverty for themselves and their families. Our benefit this year does not have a formal location, enabling us to send all of your donations directly to our partner organizations.
