The Zambian Empowerment hub for Entrepreneurship and Skills training (ZEHEST), has called for more women and Girls to be self-reliant through Empowerment schemes so as to end the scourge of men taking advantage of their vulnerability.
ZEHEST Executive Director Clarence Muzyamba said that some Women and Girls are abused because they depend on men and boys for provision of literally everything.
He stated that most women stay in abusive marriages and relationships because of lack of financial freedom, hence the need for women and Girls to be empowered.
Mr. Muzyamba said that he, believe that if women are mentored and well supported, trained and empowered with various Life survival Skills, can become self-reliant by forming their own businesses.
“As ZEHEST, we believe that if mentored and well supported, trained and empowered with various Life survival Skills, these women can become self-reliant by forming their own businesses, making profits and being able to support themselves, their families and the nation at large,” he said.
