Specific objectives

We supported educators of adult non-formal education institutions in learning and training activities, in the acquisition and use of entrepreneurial knowledge, skills and qualifications to facilitate disadvantaged woman in personal development and employability.

Through exchanging the practices among partner organizations we developed a two step activity which included designing learning strategy, creating and piloting the training program Making Ideas Happen to promote greater employability of disadvantaged woman.

We contributed to the attractiveness of entrepreneurial education and training in adult non-formal education institutions.
