WHO WE ARE


We are a community of passionate women and together we inspire to support the strengthening of the educational, economic, and social development of women.

 

Our aim is to empower women to make informed choices and independent decisions about their future and help them to reach their full potential.

 

We work with women from diverse communities and backgrounds; enabling, assisting, and inspiring them to believe in their abilities, to flourish in both new and existing businesses and in employment. 

SHEWISE had been operating under the umbrella of Community Education and Business Initiatives (CBEI) since 2010.

 

Our journey began with a single local initiative, providing education and support to women and girls experiencing poverty and other social issues due to family breakdown.

Since then, we have grown into a national organization with multiple initiatives supporting women's needs at a grassroots level and on the national and international stage.

WHAT WE DO

Our unique business model delivers support to women in three key areas:

 

Social support through the provision of guidance, casework support, advice, outreach, and signposting.

 

Advancement of education and development of skills through coaching and business training.

 

Economic stability through enterprise development and facilitation of technology, giving access to different marketplace channels.

OUR MISSION

Our big audacious goal is to develop an ecosystem that enables women to trade in the global economy.

OUR VISION

Create a world where all women have the opportunity for economic independence.
