Elizabeth Simonda is the National Project Coordinator for the International Labor Organization (ILO) Women’s Entrepreneurship Development and Gender Equality (WEDGE).

The WEDGE project started implementing its activities in Zambia in 2001. The project has now developed into a programme, the ILO- Irish Aid (ILO-IA) Partnership Programme with three Components. In phase one of the programme, (2002-2004), WEDGE concentrated on women’s entrepreneurship development. The second phase (2005-2007) of the programme integrated three components of the ILO-IA Partnership Programme in its objectives and activities namely;

  • Women’s Entrepreneurship Development and Gender Equality (WEDGE),
  • Developing Entrepreneurship among Women with Disabilities (DEWED), and
  • Promoting the Employability and Employment of people with disabilities through effective Legislation (PEPDEL).
