Blossom Cares Solutions Paving The Way For Women In Africa
“Investing in women is smart economics, and investing in girls, catching them upstream is even smarter economics.” – Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, director-general of World Trade Organization
There is no better day than November 19th to discuss Women’s Entrepreneurship Day and Blossom Care Solutions. As one of South Africa’s most impactful programs, Blossom has demonstrated how important developmental issues affecting young girls and women in South Africa can be effectively addressed and sustained through a focused entrepreneurship and development model that creates jobs for women and, over time, establishes small female-led micro-enterprises.
Established in 2019, Blossom is a mission-centric social enterprise that exists to do the following across South Africa:
Eliminate period poverty and improve development outcomes for girls in grades 5-12.
Create jobs that are sustainable that are focused on a deliberate women-centered approach.
To establish small, women-led businesses via their social franchise model.
