What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

The Government of the Republic of Burundi, through the Ministry of Human Rights, Social Affairs and Gender, has a National Gender Policy for Burundi, 2012-2025. Among the eight challenges identified which affect the social, legal and economic situation of women and which limit the promotion of equity is the challenge of equitable acquisition of knowledge and skills by women.

The Action Plan for the operationalization of the Policy provides for the identification of capacity building needs of women working in the economic sectors in rural and urban areas. It is also planned to develop a program to strengthen the technical and managerial capacities of women as well as the organization of training in informal cross-border trade on national and regional trade policies and procedures at border levels.

In General, the Business Management Training Commercial training or takes care of the entire chain needed to produce goods and services. Its main missions are :

  • The conquest of new customers;
  • Customer and project development;
  • The development of international activities;
  • The development of strategic partnerships, in order to prepare for future growth.

Commercial management also provides market indicators allowing managers to make the relevant strategic choices.

In Burundi, certain feminine and non-feminine organizations are already at work to train women entrepreneurs in order to position themselves well on the Business market.

Therefore, Burundian women, involved in the socioeconomic sectors, must take advantage of all these training in trade and business management, as long as Burundi is in certain regional economic communities and where the free movement of Goods and Capital is a reality.

In Burundi, mentoring is known in some public and private institutions for individual and collective development.

By definition, mentoring refers to an interpersonal support relationship , a relationship of assistance , exchanges and learning, in which an experienced person, the mentor, offers his acquired wisdom and expertise in the goal of fostering the development of another person, the mentee, who has skills or knowledge to acquire and professional goals to achieve 1 .

The assistance provided by the mentor is generally invoiced but may be voluntary in certain specific cases. Help is provided in the context of a professional relationship, outside the hierarchical line, responding to the particular needs of the mentee according to objectives related to his personal or professional development.

According to the online site: http://akeza.net/le-mentoring-au-service-du-developpement-aspireone-mentorship/ , Burundi is full of great talents who unfortunately ignore each other. The vast majority of young people fail to aim far and are conditioned by a predefined scheme according to which after university training, the next step is a job somewhere in administration or at best in any business.

Most of them have big projects buried deep inside that will never see the light of day because they are afraid of getting started or simply don't know how to go about it.

In the business community, several organizations provide mentoring, such as AFRABU, BBIN, AFAB and many others to support people who already have business or who have ideas to put into practice.
