What is NiNa?
NiNa is a young leadership programme that focuses on creating an entrepreneurial culture and mindset in young women in the Caribbean. The NiNa Programme equips young girls ages 15 to 18 with entrepreneurial tools and fosters an entrepreneurial culture and mind-set to deal with the challenges encountered within their environment.
NiNa seeks to create a cadre of young female leaders in the Caribbean through training in life skills, leadership, self belief and entrepreneurship.
NiNa has several activities under four streams of work –
NiNa School Programme,
NiNa Jude’s Home for Girls Programme
NiNa Summer Programme
NiNa Transition Programme
The Spotlight Initiative
In partnership with the Spotlight Initiative, the United Nations Foundation launched in 2021 the WithHer Fund – a new funding vehicle that will provide resources directly to grassroots women’s organizations around the world fighting gender-based violence (GBV) in their local communities. The NiNa Young Women's Leadership Program is delighted to have been chosen as one of the 6 organizations from throughout the world that will benefit from being a part of this Village.
