Women’s Empowerment Program goes from strength to strength

Hamlin’s Women’s Empowerment Program at Desta Mender – ‘Joy Village’ in Amharic, the specialist rehabilitation and reintegration centre Catherine established – continues to give new skills to former fistula patients so they can return to their communities empowered with hope, choices and independence.

This ground-breaking initiative offers a range of learning opportunities, including leadership and communications training, as well as small-business guidance. Since October last year, 104 women have graduated and returned home. The 13th cohort of 51 women started the three-month residency program in January 2024.
