Founded in 2007, Breaking Ground's Women's Entrepreneurial Program (WEP) provides women with critical business skills and the confidence to put them to use. In collaboration with the locally based Community Research and Development Center (COREDEC), we offer a seven-week business course that incorporates topics such as feasibility studies, basic marketing, cost analysis, and leadership, among others.
In recognition of the region's diversity, the course is offered in three languages (French, English, and Fulfuldé) to both literate and illiterate women. The class brings together women from different ethnic and socio-economic groups, rare in this society where ethnic lines are clearly demarcated and women are often only allowed to leave the house with their husband's permission.
