CAWEE is a key partner for PfC given its work to economically empower women under the belief that “Empowering Women Economically is Key to Development”. The mission of CAWEE is to promote Ethiopian women entrepreneurs, with a special focus to women exporters, both existing and potential/emerging exporters, mainly involved in Small & medium Enterprises (SMEs). CAWEE aims to create a core group of businesswomen engaged in export activities. Accordingly, the vision of CAWEE is to create globally competitive women entrepreneurs in Ethiopia.

Together with the Center for Accelerated Women Economic’s Empowerment, PfC has organized the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day in Ethiopia on November 19th, 2014 and the first ever Ethiopian Women’s Trade Mission to Norway from October 4-8, 2015.
