Mission of The Pangea Network
The Pangea Network is an international non-profit dedicated to empowering motivated individuals in Kenya and the United States with the knowledge, skills, and an ongoing network of support in order to achieve their dreams and make positive, life-changing contributions in the communities where they live.
This project provides life and business skills training as well as small business revolving funds to women living in extreme poverty, setting them on a path to better health, rights awareness, more decision-making power, greater earning potential, and a dignified standard of living.
Why We Love This
The Pangea Network’s Train the Trainer model is well thought-out, streamlined, efficient, and sustainable. Most important is the targeting and participation of middle-aged women, who are using the holistic training as a springboard for growing their businesses and making the most of new opportunities.
