Economic Empowerment Program

Economic Empowerment Program provides job readiness and training opportunities for individuals to achieve self-sufficiency. This program eliminates significant barriers towards access to education, gainful employment and financial security.

We host an annual Financial Forum, Economic Empowerment Summit and a series of financial and computer training courses.

    Impact of this program:
  • Hosted over 300 training & education workshops during FY2017, with over 3,400 participants
  • 56 participants successfully completed our Entrepreneurial Programs (e.g., Jumpstart and Protégé) during FY2017 equipping the participants with financial and business education tools increasing their confidence, independence and economic self-sufficiency
