The empowerment of communities through access to training, micro-finance and the strengthening of community self-management capacities is central to the mission of the Zalala Foundation. This includes support for savings and credit groups, the establishment of autonomous Community Associations and the provision of community spaces to be used as desired by the local communities.

Business management Courses

Since its establishment, the Foundation has provided two rounds of business management training for small business managers in the local communities. The one week training includes all aspects of business management from market research, to financial management and product improvement. Both courses were very well received and have resulted in tangible benefits in many small local businesses, from fishing, salt mining and the running of local bars and restaurants.
