In the picture: Judith Foundation members of staff were in Masasa residential area in Nkhatabay which is one of the impact implementation area, where they were monitoring and assessing the progress of Small and Medium Enterprise (SMSs) from loans that they got from the Foundation in 2021.

In this program called Skills 4 Development, there are about 350 young women. These include Gender Based Violence survivors, Adolescent Young Women and Girls, Widows, and the Elderly.

The aim of the project is to economically empower the targeted group. This follows problems they are facing, and Judith Foundation is there to reduce the hitches. In the program, the targeted group is given soft loans for their economic gain. And as a result, their families are able to respond to social economic problems they facing in their homes.

Skills for Development project started in 2021 and is expected to phase out in 2025
