Strategy for Entrepreneurship Development for ETASHA Society
Beyond Boundaries – Entrepreneurship Development Strategy for Women in Mangolpuri, Delhi
Sustainable Livelihood Development Program (SLDP) is a scientific, time-bound and generic program for developing entrepreneurship and employability in a community. SLDP has earlier been implemented with success in India. Based on the generic nature of SLDP and the success it has demonstrated in India, we wanted to explore the possibility of rolling out SLDP in Democratic Republic of Congo.
As an area for a possible intervention, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo was chosen, since ChildFund Deutschland, which is a close partner of SOCEO, is engaged there since more than a decade. Furthermore, this area shows a strong need for new opportunities to obtain a sustainable livelihood, with large number of young men, women and adolescents being afflicted directly and indirectly by the two gruelling Congolese wars in the 1990s.
