The integrated model for economic power as an instrument of change comprises four phases, these are: life skills, enterprise training, mentorship and access to finance. The project provided women with the tools to make alternative long-term choices, and set out to increase women’s agency and independence. Women on the programme reclaimed their power and participate fully in all aspects of their private and public life. In the current phase from 2020, GL has extended the programme to men linked with the women entrepreneurs and 40 local councils in Eswatini, Madagascar and South Africa. The programme reached 850 women and 501 men in the three countries.

In this phase GL is measuring community attitudes in the 40 councils to measure changes. Click here (Eswatini, Madagascar and South Africa) to read the results of the baseline attitudes surveys.
