Entrepreneurial
Training Academy

Slider

One Girl Can has partnered with UBC Sauder School of Business to create the Entrepreneurial Training Academy: a customized training program that teaches both high school and university students the rudiments of creating small scale business ventures.

This program is taught by a combination of local subject experts and international volunteers specializing in a particular discipline and offers continued mentorship and coaching while the students establish their new business.

Impacts of Entrepreneurial Training

In Kenya, high unemployment rates make it difficult for young women to find meaningful work after graduation. Entrepreneurship training is crucial to decreasing Kenya’s unemployment rate as The World Bank reports that it is one of the biggest sources of new jobs.

In Kenya, the unemployment rate is 40% compared to 5.4% globally.

Entrepreneurship training is also key to creating financial independence for women, giving them the resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty. When women are financially independent, they are able to re-invest their income into their communities, helping advance the local economy.

When women work, they invest 90% of their income back into their families and communities, compared with 35% for men.

The program

■ Students develop a business plan and bring it to market by starting their own small business enterprise.
■ Students become economically empowered, financially independent and contribute their earnings back into their families and their community.
■ Students develop critical business skills that accelerate their learning, strengthen their resumes, and make them more marketable for future employment.
