Gender And Development

Strategic Goal

To increase awareness and understanding of gender and development issues amongst young women by 2022.

The YWA programming on Gender focuses on challenging patriarchal practices that discriminate against young women’s right to make informed choices about their social and economic welfare. In addition, the gender program also addresses issues of Gender Based Violence (GBV) – its causes and effects including the popularisation of the Zambia`s newly enacted law (The Anti -Gender Based Violence Act, 2011) which most women did not have an understanding on.
