Domestic & Sexual Survivors
We help women especially those from underserved communities and survivors of domestic and sexual violence. There are more than 300 cases of domestic
violence reported in Lagos, Nigeria every month. 98% of the victims of these
violence are women, with 100women we provide a pathway for jobs, careers and business ventures for women. 100women also create a place where survivors of domestic and sexual violence heal past the trauma and learn to thrive in the society by learning skills. SME100Africa partnered with the Lagos State Domestic and sexual violence response team and has already trained 100 female survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Lagos. We create a place where survivors of domestic and sexual violence heal past the trauma and learn to thrive in the society by learning skills. We plan to train hundreds of more survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Digital Skills for Women in Africa
We train women on Digital skills in the inner cities of Nigeria teaching women how they can utilize technology to interact with the world around them thereby reducing the high rate of digital illiteracy in Nigeria amongst women. Recently we partnered with google in Nigeria to train hundreds of women in Nigeria and we plan to train hundreds more. Digital appreciation and the capacity to use the internet for commerce has been identified as a major driver of female entrepreneurship in Nigeria. We work with women across several social strata to learn digital skills; access the internet and use the internet for such ends as education, commerce and networking across cultures and geographical locations.
Programing and Entrepreneurial Training for School Girls in Nigeria
We train young school girls on the essence of starting early, we also teach them
programming and coding classes. Secondary schools hold most of Nigeria’s female population. Reaching this critical population with skills in self-care, assertiveness, entrepreneurship and employability is one of our most successful intervention programs.
Trade Fairs and Capacity Development for Women in Nigeria
We organize trade fairs and training session for women to give them opportunities for access to market. A number of women who sell goods in local communities only have access to their local markets to sell. Our goal with this program is to expand their potential customer base beyond those immediately accessible to them which will in return help generate revenue for them.
We offer mentorship for women. We create a platform where young female entrepreneurs have structured conversations with more established female entrepreneurs. Conversations are driven around the subjects of business, family, work life balance, social empowerment and encouraging greater participation of women in political and social issues within the Nigeria.
Access to Finance & Financial Literacy
We provide micro loans for female small business owners in Africa to startup and expand their businesses. Many of the beneficiaries of the micro loan schemes usually go through a series of trainings to help them better utilize the loans. We also help to drive financial literacy in Africa by providing trainings, personal consultations and media sensitization.
