AMWIK Launches Information Center in Malindi
AMWIK has launched an information and resource center for women in Malindi Constituency, Kilifi County. The center which is equipped with new computers, a printer and internet connectivity will go a long way in helping women access information on global issues and assist in sourcing for government services such as the UWEZO fund application forms and Women Enterprise Fund information. The women were trained on computer packages and have opened the center for computer trainings to the public as a way of generating income and sustainability.
The Women’s plan is to train on social media and online marketing strategies to access markets locally and internationally for their products which includes maasai sandals and baskets made from recycled polythene papers and reeds.
This is the third resource center that AMWIK has established in its projects areas since 2012. The 1st recourse center was established in Maiella location in Nakuru County, while the second is in Kilifi North Constituency in Kilifi County. The Malindi Constituency Information Center is supported by Ford Foundation.
