EWEI’s exceptional Empowerment Seminars are designed to enlighten girls and women on topical issues. So far such seminars have cumulatively benefitted 161 girls and 101 adults from 2008 to May 2014. EWEI empowerment seminars have also held quarterly since 2011 for beneficiaries of ESP helping to pass on leadership, communication, life and income generating skills to beneficiaries.
EWEI’s Empowerment Seminars feature talks and interactive sessions between participants and resource persons providing avenues for discussions on topical issues and remain a vital resource for information dissemination to marginalized groups.
These seminars are aimed at leading the participants through a process of self discovery, to take stock of their visions and dreams for the future as well as develop their current skills, talents and inclinations. They are also used to pass on both life and income generating skills that can be used to support the beneficiaries economically and socially.
Some of the specific goals on empowerment seminars include:
- Developing participants’ leadership skills
- Participants more informed about career choices
- Definite goals towards self-improvement set
- Develop social entrepreneurship skills in young women
Empowerment seminars are usually tailored to meet the design of any of our other informational initiatives for example Getting Involved (MDGs and PRSP enlightenment), Know and Say No (Elimination of violence against women), CEPWOP (Civic Education and Participation for Women Project).
Empowerment Seminars are also used to pass on vital information on reproductive health, political, economic and social issues and topics.
These seminars are usually taken to “where the beneficiaries are” i.e. schools, community halls etc and are absolutely free for participants. Educational Subsidy Programme beneficiaries are primary participants of EWEI’s Empowerment Seminars.
