KMOP would like to announce the completion of the activities of the 24-month Project “BADGE: Business Advice and Guidance training for women Entrepreneurs”.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the International Conference titled: “Business Advice and Guidance training for women Entrepreneurs”, which will be held in Athens, Greece, on the 30th of September, 2015, at the President Hotel, “Cosmos” Room.

The second cycle of thematic workshops that took place in Greece during the first week of May in the framework of the European Project: “BADGE: Business Advice and Guidance training for women Entrepreneurs”. The thematic workshops aimed at developing the soft skills of women belonging to vulnerable social groups so that the beneficiaries would be empowered in their pursuit of establishing entrepreneurial activity. The workshops were organised by the Family and Child Care Centre (KMOP), a Greek NGO, and were conducted in KMOP’s facilities in Piraeus.

During the implementation of the second pilot phase, 2 thematic workshops were conducted, titled: “How to understand if I am suited to working for myself?” and “How to balance a busy home life with running a business?” respectively. The vulnerable groups targeted were women older than 45 and women that are single parents. A total of 12 women attended the two workshops.
