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.
The WELA programme is a project based programme that examines issues, challenges and opportunities women face in creating, managing and leading businesses in Africa. It includes a trip to China, where participants will receive coaching from and network with successful Chinese women entrepreneurs.
