EDITION 1 : UWEZO TZ 2021​

The first edition of the UWEZO Project is carried out in Tanzania and locally coordinated by our Tanzanian partner Unleashed Africa. We're running a social business challenge during which women entrepreneurs from underprivileged backgrounds in Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar and Kisaware are identified, selected and trained before presenting their projects to the stakeholders of the ecosystem during a pitch competition.

OUR VISION

Women social entrepreneurs, especially from underprivileged communities have the power to foster inclusive development and to end the vicious circle of poverty, while addressing rampant social and environmental issues.

OUR MISSION

We aim at unleashing the potential (UWEZO in Kiswahili) of social entrepreneurs from underprivileged communities in Sub-Saharan Africa focusing on projects tackling environmental and gender equality issues in communities.

We want to provide these women with the appropriate guidance, support, financing and network so that they can thrive and maximize their impact.

The whole UWEZO team, including our trainers, are volunteers. Unfortunately, this collective effort is not sufficient to offer a free training to our entrepreneurs. 

You have the opportunity to make a donation that will directly fund the training of the social entrepreneurs benefiting from the UWEZO program so that the expenses related to the training can be 100% covered by Follow'her.

Transportation, food, accomodation and COVID prevention measures are a heavy financial burden to carry for these underprivileged women. 

That's where you can get involved & support them!
