In 2022, the Coca-Cola Foundation and Women In Africa joined forces to support 20,000 African women entrepreneurs through the “JAMII Femmes” initiative.
The JAMII Femmes initiative aims to increase the impact of African women entrepreneurs on the African economy and to support the creation of innovative solutions for sustainable development that will contribute to positive change in Africa by improving the quality of life for tens of thousands of people.
JAMII Femmes is a great opportunity to develop skills, access a grant and join a network of 7000 women.
Implementation of the program
For this second year, the Coca-Cola Foundation and Women In Africa are offering a multi-phase program to 7,000 women in three countries.
Education: access to the Honoris United Universities Certificate (cf curriculum) and masterclasses of experts for 7000 women
This program is inclusive and at the same time selective. That’s why the Education Pillar, which is extremely important for women entrepreneurs, is open to both new and experienced women entrepreneurs. With this we also hope to create a community where experienced women entrepreneurs can also inspire those who start.
As the program progresses, the selection criteria will focus on entrepreneurial performance
