Social Empowerment & Entrepreneurship Development.

Wibena Impact’s SEED Program equips young people with entrepreneurship skills, support and enables their businesses and innovative ideas to commercialize. The first phase is entrepreneurship training, the second phase is the mentorship program and the final phase is pitching to investors and local business leaders for support or feedback.

Wibena Impact believes that empowerment of young people and women is the key to development.

There is particularly emphasis on youth and women, thus addressing cross-cutting issues such as the promotion of women’s socio-economic empowerment and the enhancement of youth employability as well as creating hope among the youth. Wibena seeks to provide capacity building of youth and women to equip them with relevant skills in economic empowerment and employability. The motivation here is to take the initiatives to a new level that will help the involved target groups to generate income and address their basic needs at them household level as well as to save for other economic activities. Wibena Impact gives youth and women the tools to become innovators in the fields of democracy, economics, and social entrepreneurship so that they are empowered to lead, start and manage small businesses. In the long term, through appropriate projects, Wibena Impact aspires to see improved livelihoods for marginalized women and youth in targeted communities.
