Providing affordable educational opportunities to low income youth. We offer courses in Entrepreneurship and Business Management and teach the skills required to begin a successful career or start a business, which in turn creates jobs.
Our programs have benefited many young people ages 16 to 22 from the poorest communities in Ethiopia, and enabled them to receive a scholarship to study at our AWSECs. The students go on to learn the foundational skills and tools to start and run a profitable business. We offer courses in Marketing, Accounting, and Management. Students also learn IT skills needed to use standard computer softwares. Their studies and hard work while at AWSEC culminates in the preparation and writing of a comprehensive, real world Business Plan for the particular business they plan on starting.
AWSEC'ers graduate within 8 months to 2 years, depending on the given program. They continually receive mentorship all along the way, even after they leave our programs. We have partnered with local governments to provide our graduates with a grant for seed money to invest in their businesses.
