Women Business Skills Trainer

Moshi, Tanzania show on map


YAAPHA works with small women groups on micro entrepreneur projects. We rely on volunteers to come and help them on their projects since we lack funds to employ staff.

YAAPHA seeks loans from different organizations both governmental and non-governmental to implement micro businesses thus creating employment for the women groups we work with.

YAAPHA welcomes women business skills trainers to come and help them on their micro entrepreneur projects. We lack funds to employ staff, in this area and tend to rely on volunteer support.

As a women business skills trainer you will be working to train the local women on how to manage their businesses. You will teach them

  • business skills and strategies
  • basic accounting techniques
  • and help them create and develop businesses that are applicable to the environment in which they live.

The women business skills trainer may also be asked to help with administration work. A volunteer with business knowledge would be very useful at this placement. This could be someone currently in business school or a graduate.

The Volunteer’s Tasks Are:

Business Management Training

A women business skills trainer may be required to provide training to women groups. Most of the women group members don't have skills on how to manage businesses. The volunteer, together with the local staff, will engage on training the groups the basic ways of managing their businesses.

Assist on Creating Businesses

Since most of the women group members don't have the skills to develop their own business, a women business skills trainer may be required to help the women groups on developing and creating their own micro businesses.

Basic Accounting

A women business skills trainer may be required to provide training on basic accounting, as many of the women don't have accounting knowledge. The volunteer would be expected to give them basic training on accounting skills so that they could manage to run their micro businesses.

Business Assessment

A women business skills trainer may be required to work on assessing the running businesses; to ensure that each member of the group is running the business well. If there are challenges the volunteer would be expected to outline them and provide solutions to the troubled areas.
