Entrepreneurial Agri-women to graduate this week

Helen’s Daughters Rural Women’s Academy will hold a graduation ceremony tomorrow Tuesday, 10 March beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Residence of the British High Commissioner in Shorelands, Vigie.

Helen’s Daughters, a non-profit organization, was formed in 2016 stemming from a United Nations Empower Women Champions for Change Program, with the intent of directly connecting rural women farmers to the hotel industry, as a means of improving the socio-economic conditions of rural women farmers, empowering them to become active economic and decision-making citizens. 

The Rural Women’s Academy is a six month capacity-development programme that builds the skill sets and knowledge of rural women farmers and fosters entrepreneurship in rural women. 

The graduation ceremony is hosted and supported by the British High Commission in St. Lucia in observance of International Women’s Day.
