Sharing our GRATITUDE!

Ways to give

Since beginning its work in Nairobi in October 2014, WSWI has depended solely on individual donors like you to help us help women and youth pursue their dreams. Without your donations, we could not have provided the business planning workshops and coaching for microbusiness owners like like Zinia, who started a business selling used clothing but quickly determined that her real passion is in hair styling. She is now a successful mobile hair dresser. (See The Youth Banner page.)

WSWI has provided business planning training and coaching to over 200 women entrepreneurs like Zinia above.

  • only 5% were keeping accounting records when they began the program
  • 80% of the graduates now keep records of their earnings
  • Nearly 95% of our graduates have seen growth and improved operations in their business since implementing their plans

At the 2018 Connections Conference, US members of our Mentoring Community met and connected with new and existing members from Kenya and Uganda. The opportunity to meet face-to-face, deepen dialog, and share the gifts of individual wisdom through a program of business, leadership, and personal development workshops resulted in vows to stay in touch and explore ways to support our East African proteges in the pursuit of their goals. Some are single mothers overcoming obstacles in the pursuit of a college degree. Others are aspiring professional seeking advice on breaking into new careers. Others are entrepreneurs who need help with development and execution of business plans.

Your donations help us keep the momentum going in two ways. First, our partners “on the ground” in Kenya and Uganda (eMentoring AfricaAmani Empowerment Foundation and Fit for Life) need our financial support to sustain their training and mentorship programs. Second, we’d like to offer competitive grants students and small business owners, a new program planned for 2019.

Thank you for your continued support and helping us realize of vision to be an elevating connector between women wishing to share their wisdom and experience with future leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs.
