SHOFCO Women’s Empowerment Project
The SHOFCO Women’s Empowerment Project (SWEP) teaches business and entrepreneurship skills to women living with HIV in the slums. We hire our SWEP members to create beautiful handmade goods - from beaded bracelets to yoga bags - providing a means for them to support their families. The program also organizes social events for participants, helping the women bond and support each other. After they graduate from the program, the women become eligible for seed capital to start their own business through our Group Savings & Loans Program.
