Theory of change
At Aftertaste we are trying to address problem of economic poverty and social poverty using a 2-pronged approach. We realised that women in the community can play a significant role in economic growth and overall social upliftment of families and communities. Our theory of change is based on:
Empowered women = Empowered family
Aftertaste's work started with economic empowerment of the women of the community using art and craft as a medium and enabling the women to earn a dignified livelihood. Subsequently through the process of skilling the women and generating a livelihood, Aftertaste works with the women and their families continuously, to bring about social change by empowering them with knowledge and exposure to build capacity in the areas of education, healthcare and financial literacy leading to an improvement of the socio-economic condition of their families.
