Empowering communities for sustainable development through a social innovation approach and capacity building for inclusive entrepreneurship


Empowering Communities

Women Empowerment is essential for sustainable development. At TARA, we take a participatory approach such as thorough listening to identify the real issue, co-creating solutions that trigger systemic change in communities, and channelising women towards opportunities that are aligned with their ambitions. This social innovation approach bridges the gap between women's potential and access to information, finance, technology, and market, which is enabling them to reach their full potential. Our Initiatives include mentoring programs in entrepreneurship and employability through, apprenticeships, skill enhancement, financial, digital and enterprise development training. We promote an environment of entrepreneurship and innovation, enabling women to reach their full potential.

We are creating a more equitable and sustainable future for all through investing in women's economic empowerment.
