Female entrepreneurs are well outnumbered by men in Ethiopia. Andreas Hermes Akademy (AHA) has recently started to remedy this situation in cooperation with the Green Innovation Centre Ethiopia (GIZ) with a business training course specially designed for female farmers. Comprising soft skills, personality development and above all entrepreneurial know-how! 21 women from four different seed cooperatives of the Arsi region attended the course and successfully completed the three b|u|s modules. A group of local trainers facilitated the trainings over a course of 3 months.
Deepening our b|u|s activities in Ethiopia
The provision of this b|u|s course for women ties directly on AHA’s previous bus trainings in Ethiopia.
Due to the success of the b|u|s training and its great overall perception in our project region, AHA seeks to expand its impact in 2019. In cooperation with GIZ the AHA is currently planning another round of b|u|s training. Again, we will work with our seed cooperatives in Ethiopia. Offering training modules 1 to 3 of b|u|s to a new gender-mixed group will increase the seed producers capacities even further. For this AHA will also utilise the expertise of local female trainers.
