On 11 July, Africa Unite conducted casual field evaluations of the Womens Skills Development project. The women involved in the project were split into small teams including both South African and foreign national women to formulate a business idea together. Each team was given a small loan to start their group venture. The project aims to foster social cohesion between South Africans and foreign nationals, as well as to promote socioeconomic development for women in their community.
Africa Unite staff met one-on-one with a member of each team to check in on their cooperation and bookkeeping.
We will hold a meeting with all program participants in the coming weeks for a more thorough evaluation of all the womens’ projects thus far.
