CEDRED has participated in improving the capacity of women groups to enhance their savings and investment portfolios. CEDRED has also imparted skills in various local groups on financial management and book keeping. Using volunteers from schools and universities CEDRED has provided adult education to various members of these organizations to improve their capacity to access funds, understand their rights as well as linking them to potential partners. CEDRED has also helped them to develop brochures, bulletins and newsletters which make their work known.
