Who We are
Women Empowering Positive Women is a non profit and social enterprise formed to revive practical skills, educate and empower marginalized women and girls living and affected by HIV. We do this by providing support in skills and talent development, through teaching women how to make beautiful, high quality handmade products.
WEPW’s target the most marginalized women and girls who have been impacted by poverty, unemployment, trauma, stigma and discrimination in society as a result of health and life challenges. WEPW provide an opportunity for women to learn business, life skills and talent development that help them to earn extra income and increase value for their work. Our methods are based on social entrepreneurship, seeking to develop and provide social and economic empowerment programs for women.
Women are part of the community
While we may focus strongly on promoting social entrepreneurship, Women Empowering Positive Women is about more than that. We are here to promote the health and well being of women living with HIV and empower them socially and economically. Even if HIV is manageable condition, women living with HIV still experience poverty, unemployment, food insecurity, financial instability, health care access housing. stigma and discrimination, as well as mental health challenges. WEPW is working towards changing that through social and economic empowerment.
With the world of business and entrepreneurship becoming increasingly more and more digital, Women Empowering Positive Women offer a tailored digital training that help and support learners to understand the useful way of using social media, and provide tools for women to make real changes in their lives. WEPW strive to give every women the opportunity to achieve their dreams and live healthy lives. We collaborate with partners to make this change happen
