Colleges and Institutes of Canada will deliver the Empowerment Through Skills Program to Tanzanian women and girls, as part of a broader national support effort for Tanzania. CICan will deliver the seven-year, $25M program in partnership with Tanzania’s Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. Through this program, 17 Canadian colleges and institutes will work with Tanzanian Folk Development Colleges and community-based organizations to increase the participation rates of women and girls in skills training programs; improve access to business, skills, and gender and human rights training; and expand economic opportunities. 7,000 people from across Tanzania are expected to benefit from the program. CICan states that the program is aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
