Caravelle: An empowerment programme built around social entrepreneurship to help 15 vulnerable women

Empow’Her is a French charity set up in 2011 to support the empowerment of women worldwide, and aims to eliminate all forms of gender discrimination. Empow'Her supports vulnerable women by improving their economic and social conditions, helping them access education and training, developing their skills and helping them start their own businesses.

The Caravelle programme set up by the charity in partenrship with Le Mouves supports women for six months of social entrepreneurship with a series of workshops, seminars and mentoring sessions delivered by industry professionals. 

In 2017, Solidarity AccorHotels is backing the first implementation of this support programme, with the launch of three pilot projects in France (in the Paris Region, Brittany and Nouvelle Aquitaine) that will support 30 women, 15 of whom are in particularly vulnerable situations.

Jean Baptiste Portier
Project Manager Strategy AccorHotels

I’m completely behind the values of Empow’Her, and I particularly appreciate this willingness to use social entrepreneurship to empower women, some of whom live in very vulnerable situations. I’m convinced that the fact that women general managers from AccorHotels are sharing their experience as part of this project will be very beneficial to programme beneficiaries.
