WOMAN SOCIAL ENTERPRISE PROJECT
Regional Development Community Berhad (RDC) is a company limited by guarantee (CLBG) established with the aim of creating sustainable communities across the Asia Pacific region in a holistic approach grounded on principles of empowerment, inclusion, social justice, and collective action. RDC works together with identified collaborators from these countries via community engagements, business ventures and development projects that are in line with some of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
RDC aspires to build the capacity for women entrepreneurship in the communities in line with SDG targets to empower women and girls across all its programmes and advocacy. In many parts of the Asia Pacific region, although there are more women than ever in the labour market, there are still large inequalities in some regions, with women systematically denied the same work rights as men.
