The Women’s Enterprise Center has kicked off 2021 with 2 weeks of training for the Mlambeni Basket Weavers group. The ladies are learning new elephant-friendly enterprise activities to help diversify their income away from a pure reliance on maize farming. A team from GoGrow Limited, facilitated by trainers Lucy Kerei and Robert Matheka, have led the group in Enterprise Development Training, engaging the women in entrepreneurship, bookkeeping and marketing skills.
The Centre has been abuzz with excitement, and the women are learning how to use the new sewing machines the Elephants and Bees team have installed, learning new skills. Through interactive and interesting training activities like this, the Mlambeni women are broadening their skillsets, excited by the possibilities of alternative livelihood activities.
