Women Entrepreneurs. Women Empowered.

Women are increasingly contributing to the economic development of their countries, while continuing to provide for their families. A Chinese proverb says that “women hold up half the sky” and, to help them realize their full economic potential, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) provides women in developing and transition countries with knowledge, skills and technologies so they can engage in productive activities. This is part of UNIDO’s effort to achieve inclusive and sustainable industrial development.

Through its Enterprise Development and Investment Promotion (EDIP) programme, the UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office (ITPO) in Bahrain empowers women to seize economic opportunities. It provides training and coaching to encourage selfemployment and enterprise creation. There is no limit to what women can achieve, and these success stories of women who attended the EDIP are very strong testimonials to what a nurturing environment can help develop.
