The participants learned a great deal from the life experiences that these amazing women shared. And from their feedback from the event, they are going to put into practice everything they have learnt.
As part of the entrepreneurial development aim of the conference, there was an exhibition setup where 25 young enterprising girls displayed products they had created for sale. Some of the products displayed where Beaded Necklaces, Cakes, Beads, handiworks, clothes, foods, makeups etc. These young ladies received a certificate for being enterprising and had the organisers promise to support them on their entrepreneurship path.
