Female Entrepreneurs Network (FEENET) says it has registered tremendous progress in imparting various vocational skills to girls since the inception of the Msuleni project last year.
Speaking to YFM online, the Chief Executive Officer for the network Catherine Mlenga said the organisation has managed to reach over 70 girls with various skills.
“Currently the girls’ who have benefited from the project are from three government schools namely Chimutu, Kang’oma and Tunthama in Lilongwe,” she said.
According to Mlenga, the main goal of the project is to make the girls become financially stable in the country.
“We train the girls with skills like tailoring, making of jewels and shoes among others,” she added.
Mlenga further said: “The girls are being taught for a period of 6 months.”
She also disclosed plans of recruiting other girls in June for a period of six months to December.
“As of now the training gets collided with the normal classes since the girls are school learners and also currently we do not have enough funding to buy the materials for the training’s,” Mlenga said.
