Under this, Lawrence young foundation intends to provide knowledge and skills that can make the vulnerable women within our community self-sustainable.
By providing vocational skills and trainings in art and crafts, weaving, tailoring, and knowledge on better farming skills, Lawrence young foundation is able to empower women to rise up and stand as self- sufficient, capable of providing for themselves and contribute to the well-being of their families. Seeing as women are the mothers of every nation, even of the future, we find it very necessary that the vulnerable among these women are equipped and made capable of promoting sustainable development. By making women financially self-sustaining, Lawrence young foundation seeks to attain Sustainable Development Goals as with concern to achieving Gender Equality in the community.
This program is specifically engineered for the women who have been equipped with knowledge and skills on how to start and run a business.
Having received the trainings in vocational skills, these women are to be mentored on financial literacy, looking at budgeting, investment and keeping self-reliant within the business. This program is intended to ensure that they become independent rather than completely depending on Lawrence young foundation.
Under the capacity building program, Lawrence young foundation intends to promote the capacity of the women under our program to develop, implement and sustain their own solutions to problems in a way that helps them shape and exercise control over their physical, social, economic and cultural environments.
This will be carried out by engaging the women to engineer guided solutions to societal problems such as gender based violence and family problems within their communities, engaging concerned parties and with guidance from professionals within the field.
