CONGRATULATIONS WIEN

Congratulations to Women in Energy members on  completing the USAID Power Africa WIAP (Women in African Power) Network Sustainability Training Programme.

Using the Sustainability Roadmap Methodology, USAID Power Africa WIAP worked with representatives of WIEN to conduct a comprehensive and systematic approach to assessing our financial sustainability, and to plan for future sustainability.  The Roadmap included both narrative information and worksheets designed to enable us examine our current and future financial needs; to consider a variety of revenue sources, both traditional and nontraditional; and to assess each based on our philosophy and capacity.  The methodology consisted of three components: an assessment of Expenses, an assessment of Revenues, and the development of  a Sustainability Plan.  Each component used specific tools, primarily spreadsheets, designed and refined for this process, along with guided discussions with the WIAP representative.

We are proud of our representatives for participating and completing the USAID Power Africa WIAP Network Sustainability Training Programme.
