WINNER - Women in the New Network for Entrepreneurial Reinforcement
WINNER (Women into the New Network for Entrepreneurial Reinforcement) is a 3.5 year global project, currently operational in Albania, Bangladesh, China, Ecuador, Nepal, Philippines, Romania and Zimbabwe. It seeks to strengthen the practical and technical skills of women entrepreneurs through the application of basic training on information and communication technologies. Beneficiaries receive training on e-commerce, international trade, fair trade, business management and gender issues with a view towards promoting accesses to local, regional and international markets.
WINNER is building the capacity of “partner” organizations to provide business development services to women entrepreneurs. To ensure access to information and communications technologies, Help Desks have been established and equipped with computers and Internet connectivity.
The project’s recently launched “Electronic Market Space” (www.winner-devnet.org) on the Internet showcases the products and services of women trainees, and provides a forum to interact with women entrepreneurs in developed countries.See more
