On 14 June, about 300 women in Sao Tome and Principe started two months of training in small business management in the framework of the joint United Nations Programme, UNDP Sao Tome and Principe, UNICEF Sao Tome and Principe and #OIT, MUALA+.

During the training they will learn how to transform a simple idea into a small business and for those who already have one they will learn how to manage it.

Women from all districts of São Tomé and the Autonomous Region of Príncipe are participating in the training. The classes are taught by trainers and mentors from the ILO and UNDP and take place in the District Councils of Lembá, Cantagalo, Lobata and Mé-zochi, the National Library and the Protásio Pina Cultural Centre in the Autonomous Region of Príncipe.

To be implemented by December 2021, MUALA + is framed within the Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) Evaluation, Phase 2 and targets children and adolescents, vulnerable families, start-ups and micro businesses led by women, particularly those in vulnerable situations.

The project hopes to contribute to the realization of the national gender strategy, particularly for the economic empowerment of Sao Tomean women, and directly respond to the challenges in the global and national context of COVID19.
