We were able to invite girls and young women to come back for one week at Nzeve Centre last week. We had such a good time together!
The participants all ran a small business activity (hair dressing, wig making, peanut butter, baking, sewing, selling sweets) for the week and then held a mini market on Friday. They learnt about costing their goods, making a profit – or loss- and which services and items were good business.
We also spent time discussing risky behaviour and measuring risk in our choices – these young women have come a long way and they are willing to discuss difficult issues with their mentors. It was sad to see them leave, but they will continue to keep in touch through their mentors.
