The Young Women’s Association aims to support the development of young women’s skills and enable them to pursue leadership roles on issues that affect their daily lives. The activities educate women on their rights and foster the development of their strengths and confidence. We coordinate weekly or fortnightly meetings that address the 5 areas of empowerment; health, economic, social and political, environmental and education.
The Young Women’s Association often also incorporates a Self-Help Group that is helping many of the women to start their own small income generating business. This enables the women to generate revenue sources autonomous from their husband’s salary and, as a result, leads to her empowerment.
