UN Women has partnered with De Beers Group in a programme aimed at enhancing the capacity of 500 women micro-entrepreneurs and co-operatives in South Africa (in Musina and Blouberg local municipalities), Namibia and Botswana. The capacity building will entail training of individual micro-entrepreneurs on business and life skills. Members of co-operatives will also receive training to enhance their entrepreneurial and leadership skills. A programme of support called Acceleration of Women Micro-Entrepreneurs (AWOME) has been developed to be implemented from 2018 to 2020.
