KAWBO recognizes that women are creating businesses at a greater rate compared to their male counterparts and therefore need programs that empower them to manage and lead successful businesses in Africa.

 

In light of this, KAWBO partnered with CEIBS, a top ranked business school well known for its executive education courses and launched their Women Entrepreneurship and Leadership for Africa (WELA) Program in Kenya on 13th May, 2014.
