About Rego Foundation
The Rego Foundation (TRF) is a youth-led Non Governmental Organization with the aim of raising awareness about gender based violence among young women and girls while promoting education of the girl child. TRF programs are focused on reaching vulnerable adolescent girls and young women in under-served communities such as city slums and rural areas by giving them an opportunity to be self-sufficient through microloans.
Rego Foundation aims to improve the socio-economic status of 6,000 young women living in rural and urban-poor communities by the end of 2024 under the #SheBoss 2020-2024 Micro Enterprise Clinic. Rego Foundation is championing for the empowerment of young women by building their capacities in harnessing livelihood strategies through entrepreneurial induction, training, business and product development and marketing. Through Rego Foundation’s microenterprise incubator, Rego hopes to achieve a free and equitable society where young women and girls are in charge of the decisions that affect their lives.
