The CDD programme focuses on strengthening skills, competencies and the abilities of women on financial assistance in order for them to become self-sufficient. Two groups of women, 34 in total, have now progressed through CDD programme which is expanding to include men.

The third group of women began their journey in June 2015. Government’s incubation of the programme has ended and CDD transitioned, effective April 1st, 2015, to a fully functional registered charity .

    nice prizes. i didn’t buy any because 1) didn’t know who or what CDD was about and 2) the tagger was reading a book at the time and i didn’t want to disturb them.
