It has been a complete dream come true to welcome Bena, our fantastic new literacy tutor to the T+G team!
We were thrilled to be able to start 2018 providing the opportunity to learn to read and write for those of the T+G women who have never had access to education. With weekly literacy classes being introduced into our schedule, we cannot wait to watch the progress of the T+G women on this journey.
For women like Jennifer, not being able to read and write has led to her facing a real stigma in her community. Illiterate women often share about how they face not being able to get a job and being dismissed as uneducated by the community.
For many of these entrepreneurs, we believe the key to starting successful businesses is in self-confidence and being encouraged to believe in themselves and their dreams. On a daily basis, T+G is about seeing our programme members be transformed into community change makers as they become business owners We love the confidence and culture that working together at Tribe and Glory is creating, and are seeing more and more women step into wider leadership roles!
