ECONOMIC STRENGTHENING

As part of our sustainability and exit strategy for our programs, caregivers of children we support are engaged in economic empowerment initiatives which are aimed at increasing household income so that they can be cater for their children’s needs. These economic empowerment programs also aim to capacitate caregivers with skills on business development and management as well as coming up with local savings and lending schemes. In some cases, the organization supports caregivers who have businesses that show potential of developing into small-medium scale businesses by injecting capital (start-up Kits) in order to increase their stock. Chiedza has also supports schools with school based income generation projects.
