about

Building on the Indian success, Buzz Women spread out to the African continent. In March 2018, Buzz Women Gambia was established.

With our mobile classrooms we bring opportunities to low income women, who live in the rural villages and urban communities of The Gambia.

The Inner Power Training

The Inner Power training is a two-half day training about financial literacy, entrepreneurship and personal development. With our mobile academies we reach women around the country at their doorstep. After the training, the women form a Beehive—a local women’s group. They take ownership and continue their learning process. From this group, one woman will become the Anchor Woman. She will be the two-way connect between Buzz Women and the community.

Buzz Green

Buzz Green is our learning capsule on climate change and environmental education. The curriculum is built to engage, educate and empower women to serve as 'ecopreneurs' and start green businesses that will contribute in climate mitigation. In 4 modules—meaning 4 half days of training—we cover water, land, soil, pollution and consumption and solutions for a green village.

A word from our changemaker in The Gambia

Fatou Cham

 

 

What did you do before Buzz?

I was working with a microfinance institution as a regional manager, supervising the work of credit officers who give out loan to women groups in their communities. I am also a seasoned social worker in the youth sector.

Why did you start working at Buzz?

In finding answers to my questions on the rising scale on poverty I was privileged to join the the Women United Leadership Journey, organised by Better Future in 2017. At that program I was able to make believe that poverty is not about lack of money but a lack of opportunities to explore one's inner ability. This resonates so much with my path to self-development.

impact stories

“I used to do business and spent my earning unnecessarily without saving a penny. Then, Buzz Women Gambia trained me how to manage my business well and make savings. That made the difference because I used to obtain a loan to run my business. But now, I am debt free.”
