Training of 65 IDP and host community women in entrepreneurship to reduce poverty

Training workshop of 65 IDPs and Host Community Women around Goma on Entrepreneurship organized by SADI Kivu and facilitated by the Coordinator of COJESKI North Kivu

Participants in the workshop

SADI is one among the member organizations of COJESKI North Kivu and with a support of a Donor from the United States of America, SADI is implementing a project aiming at economic empowerment of IDPs and members of the host communities around Goma.

The beneficiaries are organized in various Saving Groups and Associations which aims at helping to acquire the necessary knowledge they may need and maximize opportunities. These groups have been supported with agriculture seeds in order to plant and fight against hunger and malnutrition, on top of that they were granted food in order to have what to eat until the crops are ready and now it was time for the training in Enterpreneurship so that they can develop more economic resilience.

The training brought together 65 IDPs and women from hosting communities, it started at 9am and ended at 4pm, it was facilitated by Germain Mirhonyi the President of NDSCI North Kivu, and moderated by Kulihoshi Musikami Pecos the Coordinator of COJESKI North Kivu.

The training started by the welcome remarks from Martin Kayabu the Coordinator of SADI Kivu and was officially opened the Deputy Local Leader Chief.

At the end of the session, the participants thanked SADI and requested that these trainings are regular so that people can be empowered on how to generate money and reduce poverty, but also they expressed the need to be supported financially in order to put in practice what they learnt.

We thank SADI Kivu for this initiative and we believe that such activities will not only reduce poverty which is one among the causes of vulnerability but also, the economic recovery is one among the best options to the current humanitarian crisis in North Kivu, especially in Goma and its surroundings.
