The Botswana chapter of the African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), are empowering female entrepreneurs across Botswana with a recently-launched series of capacity building workshops. These sessions focus on entrepreneurial training for women and raising awareness about the African Growth and Opportunities Act (AGOA).
The African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program assists women entrepreneurs across sub-Saharan Africa. These small and medium business owners are transforming their societies through economic development and social advocacy in their communities. The three-week program allows the AWEP participants to share best practices, discuss common challenges and learn about the global economy and factors that lead to long-term business growth.
There is no application for AWEP. Participants are nominated and selected annually by the staff at U.S. Embassies across Africa based on their entrepreneurial accomplishments and potential to advance relationships between their country and the United States.
