SCOPE-Strengthening Community Partnership & Empowerment

Facilitation of Business Training

Facilitation of Business TrainingSCOPE’s wide range of work also includes facilitation of business trainings. SCOPE has facilitated a number of business trainings targeting various groups.

The program works to provide these groups with the skills and support required to successfully start-up income-generating activities. We work with a range of other local NGO’s and State/ Parastatal organisations to provide marketing information and business resources to several groups.

Our achievements

  1. Trained 23 HIV/AIDS support groups (KIKASU) from across Kilifi and Kaloleni on Business and Business start-up which has seen all groups start successful savings groups providing an exit for FBP clients. Other trained components on the support groups include; Resource Mobilization, Socio-economic Dynamics in relation to HIV& AIDS, Agronomics amongst others. Twelve of our groups are now successfully generating income by producing eco-friendly charcoal, thus also helping prevent further eco-damage from charcoal production in Kilifi.
