Macedonia 2025 is proud to announce the commencement of a new project funded by the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI), where it has been selected among numerous applications from the region
Upon successfully establishing the Bitove Family Entrepreneurship Program in partnership with the Canadian Executive Service Organization (CESO), Macedonia2025 will add value to the existing program by scaling up its activities and reaching out to more beneficiaries, in particular organizations focused on empowering women entrepreneurship, thanks to the new project funded by the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).
The aim of the project is to empower female-led business associations by assigning them an Advisor who will be intensively working with them to strengthen the organizational capacity. Namely, three Canadian Advisors will be providing technical assistance to Macedonian female-led associations, which are focused on advocacy for female entrepreneurship, gender equality and empowerment of women by increased opportunities for employment. The Advisors will focus on helping the organizations on improving their services for their members and guiding them how to handle their needs and requests in order to build stronger women entrepreneurs’ community. They will also work on strengthening the organizational capacity, self-sustainability and strengthening the associations through economic activities, which will lead towards providing adequate financial stability.
The program will be implemented through a diverse group of civic organizations and associations across Macedonia who work with female entrepreneurs or whose members are holders of executive positions in different fields. The final objective is to contribute to the transformation of these organizations targeting women-entrepreneurs into self-sustainable entities who could prosper from the growth and development of their members.
