Women Food Entrepreneurship Program organised by Jabatan Wanita & Keluarga Sarawak (JWKS) & conducted by Kuching Skills College.

Sarawak has made great strides towards achieving women’s empowerment. Women have been increasingly mainstreamed into development processes & by playing a variety of roles at the family, community & society levels, they have been able to contribute to state development & prosperity. Of particular note are the higher levels of educational attainment of women, their increased labor force participation in higher-paying occupations, their greater involvement in business activities & their improved health status.
The efforts of the government have been complemented by the active advocacy & programs of the women in the country. Special social, economic & training programs have been implemented to reduce poverty rates among women, especially single mothers & women from low-income families. These include the provision of microcredit, information & communication technology (ICT) & skills training.
