The team met with nearly a dozen members with the Center of Community Organization and Development, better known as CCODE. They gave us an update on the progress of our economic empowerment partnership. They said training is key to help participants understand the requirements to start a savings program and to build trust to get a loan. We then visited with several villages and their residents who have created successful businesses – they are true inspirations for the children.
