Abstract: This paper examines a women’s skills development training program in basic hospitality skills that was designed and facilitated with the cooperation of a multinational donor and its partners with an objective of promoting entrepreneurship among women in post war South Sudan. A brief review of the entrepreneurship development literature from an international donor perspective is conducted along with a discussion of the entrepreneurship program as a targeted approach for empowering and sustaining women's economic situation in South Sudan. Emphasis is placed on women Small Scale Enterprises (SSE) entrepreneurs and current involvement of multinational assistance agencies to regenerate hospitality skills training in a poor country after decades of devastation civil political conflict.
