Training women in Business skills, economic literacy and sociao transformation in Lesotho
The above workshops were run concurrently in different areas. In social transformation, Lewepon believed that women had to do things differently and more efficiently so that they could have time to attend to improving themselves as people.
The first workshop was conducted at Naleli, Maseru for representatives of Matelile, Kolonyama, Berea and Maseru women’s gropus, and some staff of the Ministry of Gender, Sports, Youth and Recreation.
The second and third workshops were at Emmanuel Hostel Hall, where women were taught about care, maintenance of pigs and canning pork meat. This was overwhelmingly successful since representatives of all our groups turned up in multitudes.
The economic literacy component covered marketing, national budgets, and how they could be monitored, transnational corporations and globalization. Women were also exposed to local government plans, how they could contribute and how they could monitor government spending.
