Investing In Women in the Blue Economy in Kenya (IIW-BEK)
Global Affairs Canada (GAC) has dedicated a total of CAN $ 9.7m through the Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) to catalyze the Blue Economy sector in the Republic of Kenya. The project seeks to contribute to economic empowerment of women enterprises, their suppliers, and producers along key supply chains where women are discriminated against in the Blue Economy in Kenya.
