Entrenuity's Angela Jackson lives an inspiring life and lives her life to inspire. Incorporating her love for business and community, Angela is currently utilizing her expertise as a business consultant/coach to develop and empower marginalized communities throughout Nairobi, Kenya. As a Certified StartingUp Now Facilitator, Angela is teaching the SUN curriculum to service and support startup organizations and entrepreneurs in multiple social enterprise efforts:
- Angela is currently teaching business classes at IJM--an organization that specializes in social services and recovery for victims of police brutality, unjust imprisonment, and survivors of sexual exploitation. IJM developed an aftercare plan that supports survivors with economic empowerment along with a fund to kick-start small enterprises. Angela assists IJM’s staff in providing practical business training to help these small businesses become self-sustainable. Angela works with the IJM staff so they can assist their clients in creating excellent business plans and equips them with the proper tools to coach their clients for success.
- Alongside an organization like IJM, Angela is passionate about working with HAART, an organization
that raises awareness against human trafficking. Kenyans are trafficked as a result of child labor and exploitation. Men, women, and children are
all subject to such heinous crimes. Angela equips and coaches survivors, supported by HAART, to recover and start their own businesses in the midsts
of adversity and emotional trauma.
- Between her time teaching business classes to the staff of these organizations and helping in the recovery process of sex trafficking survivors, Angela volunteers her time at Christ Hope International, serving children and orphans affected by aids. Angela recognizes the importance of strengthening families and teaches business classes to both children and their parents. Angela uses simple life illustrations to teach children the importance of recognizing problems in their community and coming up with lasting solutions.
- As a strong and empowered women herself, Angela uses her business skillset to partner with Woman’s Hope, a
community that provides the women of Kenya with relevant social-economic information to uplift their society. Angela helps nurture and cultivate
a culture of strong female leaders, assisting them in developing strong and stable social enterprises.
