WHAT IS OUR SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC GOAL
Impact or goal Number # 1
Increased income - ability to gain financial independence and attain self sufficiency
- Average income is less than $1 a day in Burundi. Kaz´O´zah aims to increase this to $3 a day for 3-6 hours when working for the fashion cooperative. The cooperatives are supported to save and invest within themselves to further increase their income.
Impact or Goal number # 2
Increased employability - ability to start a revenue generating activity (group or individual business)
- Includes practical vocational skills, basic business skills in saving, and important soft skills like confidence
Impact or Goal number # 3
Improved independence and family welfare – ability to provide for their families using the new skills or improved quality of life
- Supportive rather than discriminatory towards single and young mothers. One of the greatest impacts as shared by our women is how going to work and being seen working improves how they are perceived in their community. This improves their relationships, access to resources, and respect and others coming to them for advice and support.
