Young, aspiring entrepreneurs from the Guineales Community and the Xojola Community gathered for a two-day workshop focused on turning their community projects into income-generating businesses. Each group is made up of a handful of youth who joined Youth Leadership (YL) Project in 2015. You can read more about them here.
After two years of learning about organic gardening, project management, monitoring and evaluation the groups are finally ready to plunge into the world of entrepreneurship. The group from Guineales is cultivating mushrooms and plans to sell them to neighbors and at the market. In Xocola, they’re hoping to sell local honey.
We’re very excited to see the progress of these small businesses and to see the youth from these communities create sustainable and economic opportunities.
