What’s Your Definition of Empowerment?

When you empower someone, you acknowledge what they can give, not what they can receive.

We aim to empower women within our organisation through our reusable pad and locally-made soap initiatives.  Our pads and soap are all made by women in our trauma counselling programme, who were previously unemployed.

The valuable sewing and soap-making skills they have acquired enable them to generate their own income and to play a role in the upliftment of rural communities.
