DIWA Capacity-building Program is a three-month long online capacity building program made possible by our partnership with S&P Global Foundation. This program will bring together 25 Women Social Entrepreneurs (WSEs) on a holistic learning journey that empowers them to create stronger impact, all while establishing a community of determined WSEs in ASEAN.   

If you are a WSE who wants to build their capacity, deepen their impact, and be part of a community of strong female leaders, apply to be a part of our DIWA program. Join us in our movement of empowering female leaders through increasing their confidence and fostering community.  

Objectives of the program:
