Women's Enterprise for Sustainability


Women's Enterprise for Sustainability

Expanding women’s economic opportunities is fundamental to sustainable growth and building more equitable societies. The Women’s Enterprise for Sustainability (WES) program empowers women-led organizations in Tunisia to operate WES centers as social enterprises. Through these centers, aspiring and established women entrepreneurs gain new skills and networks, launch and expand businesses, and develop as innovative leaders in their communities.

What does WES do?

  • Build the entrepreneurialism and sustainability of local civil society organizations; and
  • Develop a network of women entrepreneurs with leadership and practical skills to actively contribute to shaping the future of their country.
