Through Vodafone Turkey Foundation’s Women First in Entrepreneurship programme, more than 36,000 women have received training on entrepreneurship, communications and finance.

Once trained, they can use their new skills to make and sell handmade items on a bespoke website. Launched in 2015, the programme is run in partnership with the Ministry of National Education and the Turkish Informatics Foundation.

This year, a new mobile application was launched to enable women to access e-learning content and manage their products. The application has been downloaded over 21,000 times, with over 50% of the users completing the e-learning.
