After the timeless women's conference, we sat down and compiled all the agreed outcomes from all our sessions to guide our key strategic areas for timeless women of Africa and a basis for our initiatives. 3 months after the end of the conference, we had to form teams and strategic partnerships to enable us implement the key strategies one of which focused on skills development for the women in the construction sectors. With interactions with the women at the grassroots, we identified one of the largest slums in the world - Kibera and inspired the women at the grassroots to embrace something new and try it out. This was one of the hardest hurdle we had met ever that we needed to overcome.
