Akina Mama wa Afrika in partnership with the Foundation for Women’s Health Research and Development (FORWARD) and the Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel (SSAP) with support from Comic Relief is pleased to announce the second phase of the Young Women's Leadership and Mentorship Fellowship Programme under the TuWezeshe Akina Dada Africa-UK Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Movement project.
The fellowship that embraces innovative and effective approaches including capacity building, leadership development, mentoring, organizing young women networks and social change communication activities, aims to improve the rights and amplify the voices and actions of East African girls and young women in their fight against all forms of gender based violence.
Against this background, AMwA is planning to hold a five-day residential feminist leadership training for young women working or hoping to work against Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV). As part of our commitment to improving the visibility and profile of young African-women leaders, participants will have the chance to shape sexual and gender-based violence policy, network with other inspiring young women leaders across East Africa and the UK and share their ideas, voices and stories on a range of national and international platforms. The training is proposed to take place from July 23rd - 27th 2018 in Uganda.
Apply now and join the TuWezeshe Fellowship in Uganda, a bespoke leadership development and mentoring program for young African women.
