Chak a Chaka Young Women's Economic Empowerment Project

Since 2016, PATH has been supporting the implementation of the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief's DREAMS programming to keep AGYW HIV-free with a holistic package of health, economic empowerment, education, and social services. After DREAMS enrollees receive all of their age-specific services, they graduate and exit the project. Despite having participated in financial capability and entrepreneurship training, many young women still lack the networks, opportunities, and capital to earn a living and become financially stable.

The PATH-led Chak a Chaka project provides DREAMS graduates with opportunities to save, build, and employ entrepreneurial skills and create supportive and sustainable networks that protect their health and wellbeing, and that of their children and families. This factsheet provides additional details on the Chak a Chaka project and its successes to date.
