CGEED calls application for Digital Transformation Grant for Women-led Enterprises

This grant works to empower women with digital literacy. During this COVID-19 pandemic, it has been challenging businesses to ensure continuity of operations due to the lack of adequate resources required to accommodate the new workforce process presented by the pandemic. Most women lack ICT skills training and education programs that can help them effectively manage their business in the digital economy.

Work has moved from physical environments into digital and cloud environments. Organizations that were ready before the pandemic continued to deliver services and quickly adjusted their workflows to the new normal. Many small businesses had to close or drastically curtail business reach due to a lack of resources.
This money for CGEED is a service credit to help SMEs so these businesses can stay in touch with their customer base and also be able to transact their business fully online.
