VGIF Objective of the 2016/2017 VGIF.

The main objective of the 2016/2017 VGIF funded program was to empower women and girls so as to increase on their economic self-reliance. Through education and vocational trainings women were taught how to source for local and nutritious ingredients to produce and sell affordable cakes/cookies in their communities. Baking was done using local charcoal stoves. The women get to keep the profits and save them in order to grow their individual savings accounts within the women’s SACCO.
