Over 3,000 women from across the country are set to benefit from e-commerce training from Jumia in collaboration with SheCares International. This announcement was made at the launch of the inaugural Global Women’s Summit hosted by SheCares International in partnership with Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA).

The aim of the training is to support women entrepreneurs in business. The women who will benefit from this training were selected by SheCares International from the Global Women Summit, launched on Thursday by Gender Affairs Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki. The e-commerce training will empower the women to navigate the digital world to and access broader markets    

Speaking during the launch, Sam Chappatte, Managing Director of Jumia Kenya said the training will empower women to exploit opportunities in the virtual space and break technological barriers.

“In a world that is going virtual, it is crucial that all actors in society have the training & tools they need to exploit the marketplace of tomorrow. This program is tailored to train these ambitious, enterprising women on technological tools they will need to succeed, and simple means to start generating new income streams, without investing more capital” Chappatte said.

“Through our sister services at Jumia, we can offer additional opportunities to restaurant owners who wish to list on Jumia Food, property dealers who want to work with Jumia House, Hotel owners on Jumia Travel, and product owners with Jumia and Jumia Market,” he added. .

The Cabinet Secretary also emphasized the importance of empowering women to fully exploit their potential. She pledged to work together with all stakeholders to ensure that the business environment is favorable for women to be empowered economically. KEPSA CEO Ms.Carole Kariuki added that women are key agents for achieving transformational economic, environmental and social changes required for sustainable development in Kenya and globally.
