The Empowerment Through Skills Program (ESP) will strengthen alternative pathways to education and employment for women and adolescent girls. Working with Folk Development Colleges (FDCs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in 12 Communities across Tanzania, ESP aims to increase rates of participation among women and adolescent girls in skills training programs and improve access to business, skills, and gender and human rights training in their communities. The Program will also expand opportunities in the informal and formal sectors through post-training support to transition to employment or self-employment.
ESP is a 7-year program (2021-2028) implemented by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in close collaboration with the Tanzanian Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MOEST) through the Department of Technical and Vocational Training (DTVET) and is funded by the Government of Canada.
