Entrepreneurship is a challenging journey, and in regions with limited resources, the path becomes even more daunting. Bridging this gap in developing countries, such as Africa, first starts with education.
Drexel University and the Charles D. Close School of Entrepreneurship (Close School) recognized this need for entrepreneurial education and embarked on a remarkable journey to support young female entrepreneurs in West Pokot, Kenya. HER Lab is a place in West Pokot, Kenya where Global Give Back Circle’s holistic workforce readiness programming takes place. Over six months during the Global Give Back Circle (GGBC) HER Lab partnership with Drexel’s Close School for entrepreneurship education, two Drexel students, guided by a Close School faculty advisor, introduced a curriculum designed to foster an entrepreneurial mindset and innovative thinking skills to 50 Kenyan girls, laying the foundation for a transformative experience.
