‘’Women spend 90% of their earned income on their families’’. WISE women do more than 90%. This was confirmed at a panel discussion, in which around 200 WISE women took part at WISE Academy on 18th September, 2015. Four panelists drawn from WISE SACCOs forwarded their views. Everybody agreed to the statement.
A total of 16 youngsters with hearing impairment from the town of Hosaena took part on Apparel Making and Basic Computer Skills training at WISE. Fifteen of the participants passed the Ethiopian Certificate of Competence test (COC) and one girl missed the test due to illness.
WISE successfully completed a ToT in Business Management Skills to staff drawn from six African countries (including Ethiopia). The training aims at adopting WISE’S Business Management Skills training to target members of the respective organizations the participants come from. The country teams developed outlines for the trainings they are going to offer and action plans for the coming six months.
