MASVINGO – Women Entrepreneurship Day Organisation (WEDO), a non-governmental organisation that empowers, celebrates and supports women in business worldwide is exhibiting at the Masvingo Agricultural Show for the first time.
The show runs from today to Sunday under the theme Transformation, the Key Engine for Economic Growth.
WEDO Masvingo ambassador and Eben Hardware director Benonia Machavuda confirmed the development to The Mirror.
She said women entrepreneurs from various sectors of the economy would exhibit under the WEDO banner.
“We have women in tourism, agribusiness, manufacturing, mining, ICT, commercial services and others who are yet to confirm. It is ideal for women to come and showcase their products and services to explore new markets,” she said.
WEDO is celebrated in more than 144 nations. It was founded at the United Nations in 2013. Its mission is to empower the four billion women across the globe to be catalysts of change and to uplift the 250 million girls living in poverty globally.
“In addition to our mission of empowerment, we are committed to gathering a think tank of inspiring women leaders who can amplify our message of expanding businesses with social-good initiatives in communities around the world,” she added.
