Enabling Opportunities for Young Women

Following the success of our Empowering Mums programme, the Empowering Young Women programme was launched in November 2021 to empower young women with life skills to help them out of the poverty cycle.

The programme provides personal and professional guidance for young women from low-income families, aged between 17 to 23 years old.

Participants are exposed to a wide array of topics covering personal growth, relationship management, communication strategies and career coaching over 6 sessions. The programme will then culminate with a graduation and networking session.

After graduation, three monthly post-project sessions are held to further support our young beneficiaries on their journey of self-driven change.
