Women in Action

Women in Action projects in Cabinda, Bengo, Luanda and Benguela provide training in sewing, altering and repairing clothes, creating accessories and producing home textiles. A course on business skills, including marketing, provides the women with the basic knowledge required to develop their own enterprise. Graduates have access to continued support for at least six months in the Incubation Period, where they can get individual assistance and collaborate with project staff and other graduates to create new opportunities.
