Project ID 537RAF4003

Women in Zimbabwe with an existing creative business with a limited or informal capacity will join the ResiliArt Accelerator. The beneficiaries will receive customized online mentorship from African mentors and regular off-line sessions from a team of local coaches. The project innovatively responds to the existing knowledge and capacity gap in entrepreneurial skills and contribute to the formalization of creative businesses. The Accelerator programme concretely responds to the opinions expressed by thousands of stakeholders during the UNESCO ResiliArt movement.
