This innovation tests a solution to enhance women’s socio-economic empowerment and increase livelihood opportunities for refugees in Nairobi, Kenya. It will do so by integrating digital entrepreneurship components in skills development courses and utilize online e-commerce marketplaces to showcase talents in creative arts (dance, music, theatre, art, photography etc.). A group of female entrepreneurs will establish online businesses using digital tools, strategies, and practices and create peer-to-peer business relationships with female artisans in their communities.
