Family economic empowerment
Shekinah center’s program also incorporates a family economic empowerment plan to boost the financial economy of households. This project touches different groups: Families of Shekinah School Students receive goats to sustain the wellbeing and support the education of their children. Additionally, we help women grow their capital, invest in entrepreneurial ventures and their households and their community by extension. With this objective, VSLAs of 25-30 women are formed every year and members receive goats & entrepreneurship training. Following an almost similar concept, Shekinah Center has just launched a youth entrepreneurship project to enable young people in Rusaka to start small enterprises while farming to grow their capital.
