Road to Growth in Kenya
Our seven-week intensive Road to Growth programme has run in Kenya since Autumn 2021 with the support of our partners.
With the support of our partners, DHL Express and Sinapis, our Road to Growth programme has been running in Kenya since late 2021.
Road to Growth is one of the Foundation’s five flagship programmes. The seven-week intensive business management and investment readiness programme uses a unique, custom-built online learning tool. This programme also presents the women who participate with networking opportunities within the group, which serves as a highly successful professional and personal support system.
Over 400 women entrepreneurs have participated in our Road to Growth programme in Kenya.
