Akina Mama wa Afrika in partnership with the Foundation for Women’s Health Research and Development (FORWARD) and 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 led by FORWARD UK.
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.
The TuWezeshe Fellowship is a bespoke leadership mentoring program for women of African heritage working or hoping to work against sexual and gender based violence. Part of the international TuWezeshe Akina Dada Africa-UK Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Movement, the one year fellowship offers participants the opportunity to gain core leadership skills, to be mentored by an established woman-leader and to implement their own, funded, project.
Apply now and be a feminist mentor under the TuWezeshe Fellowship in Uganda, a bespoke leadership development and mentoring program for young African women.
