Women Leading the Way Out of Poverty
The DeBridge community center Women’s Empowerment group was launched in 2014 as an initiative to fight poverty at the grassroots level. It was formed by women for women and is led by women.
At the DeBridge community we strongly believe that women are the pillars of the society. We started women group initiative with the primary aim of helping women to be financially independent. The women involved all know first-hand the challenges of raising a family in this environment. As well as providing support, the group helps provide income-generating opportunities. Our initiatives bring women together and enable them to learn the social and technical skills to build their small business. In addition from learning from each other, we support them by providing expertise from which they gain skills such as tailoring, baking, and small-scale farming.
The Three Main Objectives For Women
By participating in opportunities that increase the sustainability of the group and the individuals within it.
Empowering women with small business, tailoring, baking, and small scale farming skills.
By donating 25% of income to support the school feeding program.
