Empowering Girls (E3)

For women living in poverty in large urban slums and outlying areas, escaping poverty has little to do with desire or ambition. It has much more to do with opportunity.

While some countries have modernized to some extent, its institutions simply can’t meet the overwhelming needs of their large population. Schools are overcrowded and inadequate for the task, and many get left behind or left out altogether.

That’s where you come in, through the E3 Vocational Training Schools. E3 stands for Education, Empowerment, and Employability.

Through E3, you get to do far more than just keep people alive. You give them the job skills and the opportunity to permanently escape poverty for themselves, and their future generations.

These highly focused programs teach practical and in-demand job skills in a workshop-based setting. It’s hands on training taught by skilled instructors.

Here are the vocational training programs E3 and Remedia currently provide.


This six month program also runs five days a week, and trains women with skills they can use to work in beauty salons and shops.

There is a growing marketplace for this skill, and for women who gain the skills now, it can be the boost they need to increase their income security and escape the cynicism that breeds from entrenched poverty.

This program teaches beauty skills such as :

  • Facial cleansing and scrubbing

  • Manicures and pedicures

  • Head and body massage

  • Hair cutting and styling

  • Threading

  • Lash shaping

  • Bridal make-up


Women emerge equipped with the ability to work in salons, or if motivated and supported enough, to start their own businesses.


This six month program runs five days a week, and trains women with basic office skills they can then go use to apply for entry-level jobs in the city centers.

This program teaches skills such as :

  • Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint

  • Basic computer skills and typing

  • Administrative duties, such as ordering supplies, making appointments

  • Communication skills – letters, faxes, emails

  • Customer service in person and on the phone

  • Planning business trips and itineraries

  • Bookkeeping and vendor development

  • Business attire

  • Personal development

  • How to ace a job interview


You can see the breadth of subjects students learn in this program. They emerge with so many new skills that countless doors to job opportunities that were closed to them before will now be open.

Poverty, despair, and feeling trapped will be replaced with hope, confidence, and determination for each woman that goes through this course.


Many countries are well-known for its beautiful and colorful clothing and apparel. E3’s Tailoring School helps women in poverty gain the skills they need to jump in the mix of this thriving industry.

The six month Tailoring School teaches women the skills they need to do one of three things :

  • Get a tailoring job with another company or business owner

  • Work in a tailoring business we are setting up for them

  • Start their own tailoring business

With your help, Remedia provides the sewing machines and materials needed for all the women to complete the course work. The skills they learn include sewing, design, and embroidery. There is an end-of-course exam they must pass to certify their mastery of these skills.


This is the vision for E3. It’s not just eking out a living. It’s about changing lives and upending the cycle of poverty that is so hard to break, especially in the large slums where habits and expectations become fixtures for life, holding millions back from the a better life.

With your help, these women will do much more than learn job skills in a vocational training program. They’ll gain the confidence to go out and start their own businesses, or partner up and work together.

Hundreds of women have already taken these courses, but the demand is exploding. Our Facebook posts and comments are being responded to by tens of thousands.

Women want in. They want the opportunities these courses provide.

We can do much more. With more help from people like you who want to fight poverty at its roots, we can expand these three powerful vocational training courses to many more cities.


You’ve read stories about abuse, rape, and crimes against women and girls all over the world.

Remedia educates girls on safety and security but we pride ourselves at being able to give them the confidence they need to fight back in any situation, to speak-up and to ask for help.

The Empowering Girls program also focusses on their mental health on the roads, at home and at school or int he work place. The girls gained job skills ranging from beauty, tailoring, secretarial, computers and much more. They also get help with their school work.

Remedia’s E3 Job Growth program now offer 1-year & 6-month vocational training courses that teach many more skills to women of all ages who want jobs but don’t have the skills.

For the younger girls, Remedia’s Happy Hearts schools help them succeed in school with tutoring, education and mentoring they can’t get in overcrowded government schools.

We also offer financial help, medical help, help with their fess, assistance to their families, help with clothes and daily needs but it is a lot to offer and sometimes overwhelming but we stay strong only because we believe that it is from our confidence and belief their these girls can survive and thrive.
