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. Women GBV survivors grew their own businesses through access to finance, education and support. Participants in the programme have been hard hit by the COVID 19 pandemic.
