SHIFT Enterprises: pathways to employment

The programs run at SHIFT develop through a series of stages. Beginning with simply learning the basic ‘how to’ skills and moving into developing capability suitable to build social enterprise opportunities. Our ability to move through these stages is backed by skilled volunteer teachers and seed grants received to purchase materials. Skills learnt by the participants becomes their pathways to employment. Each enterprise pathway is self-sufficient and we are working towards building a return on investment. Any monies received from these ventures sustain our program and provide the women with a small financial return.
