JANA (program of C@rma) and Fundacion CIEES empower disadvantaged communities to build sustainable and inclusive economies through business. They primarily work with (migrant) women with low education and mentally disabled communities, respectively. CIEES has built a strategic model for providing training in entrepreneurship adapted to the abilities of their beneficiaries. In their partnership, CIEES and JANA are investigating whether this model can be replicated in Turkey, and searching for new ways to fund their initiatives.
