The Empowerment Through Skill Program (ESP)

designed to strengthen alternative pathways to education, employment self-employment, and entrepreneurship for women and adolescent girls by working with Folk Development Colleges (FDCs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in 12 Communities across Tanzania. It aims to increase participation among women and adolescent girls in skills training programs and improve access to business, skills, and gender and human rights training in their communities. It will expand opportunities for women and adolescent girls in the informal and formal sectors through post-training support to transition to employment or self-employment. The program is funded by the Government of Canada....

About the project

Starting point

Engaging with educational experts, we uncovered what the most fundamental tools are for trainee teachers. This included how much time was required for training.

Support from local communities

Finding out the main enduring barriers to education, as well as the most essential requirements to childhood development in Mara, was at the core of our mission here.

End result

By listening, engaging, and understanding exactly what was needed to empower educators in Mara, we were able to equip teachers with the necessary skills to use in the classroom.
