Women Enterprise Workz

Monday, August 18, 2008

Whilst in Singapore on a Ministerial visit Foreign Office Minister Meg Munn visited the Women Enterprise Workz (WEworkz) co-operative. WEworkz was launched in March 2008 to encourage and empower women who are unable to commit to full-time employment to engage in home-based economic activities. As a Co-operative MP Meg was keen to find how the enterprise was founded and how well it was doing.

 

Run independently by a Board of Directors, WEworkz is built on a sound business plan to develop a talented and skilful workforce so as to deliver quality products and services to the community. The co-operative provides training and business opportunities that fit the members’ personal skills and interests, and will work with community and corporate partners to secure business, as well as building networks for part-time or free-lance services such as hairdressing, beauty and domestic cleaning services.

 

Commenting on her visit Meg said:

 

“It was inspirational to visit and see the women of the co-operative working together. They obviously thought that having training to increase their skills was vital in opening up possibilities for their future.” 

 

WEworkz is a spin-off from ‘Candles By Moms’, a project founded in February 2007. That enterprise recognised that many women need to earn extra money to supplement their family income, but are limited by the lack of part-time, flexi-work or home-based work opportunities. ‘Candles By Moms’ trained an initial batch of 20 women to make candles, of which several of them begun earning extra money by fulfilling corporate orders for candles. Seven also went on to gain some retail experience by manning a stall selling candles at IKEA in June 2007.
