I am currently working on a project called Women ACTS-Africa.
Our main objective is to empower women economically. In Women ACTS-Africa, we believe that empowering women is the key agent of change in the society we live in.
Women ACTS-Africa seeks to come up with a collective business models that can allow women become relevant in the society; in terms of applying their knowledge and skills in the society and at the same time fight poverty at the community level. Empowering women is also an indispensable tool for advancing development and reducing poverty.
We intend to empower women through improving access to information and resources required for their start-up activities. Women ACTS-Africa targets women and girls especially in the rural areas.
Statistics show that, 70% of girls in the rural areas (Kenya) are forced to drop out of schools at a tender age and forced to take up family roles. These girls can be given the opportunity to continue being relevant in the society and live up to their dreams.
Our mission is to enable women especially in rural areas to realize their full potential by impacting leadership, independence and decision making powers.
In ACTS-Africa, we firmly believe that the permanent solution to improve the socioeconomic status’ of communities can only be achieved through developing their ability to mobilize, manage and control local and external resources by themselves; when women are empowered the youths and children are equally empowered.
Having taken part in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition, I request fellow MUNers and beyond to vote for my idea so that I can spread the knowledge of my project.

The competition ends on 31st July 2014. Voting can be done daily.
