Socio-Economic Empowerment Of Young Women

Strategic Goal

To facilitate opportunities and start economic empowerment community projects everywhere we have a footprint for young women that will assist them in raising their socio-economic status in the country by 2022.

The socio-economic empowerment program of YWA has two elements, access to education and enhancement of entrepreneurial and life skills among targeted girls and young women.

Under the education component, YWA provides educational support to girls and young women through payment of their school fees. The educational support to girls and young women is at three levels, namely, primary, secondary and tertiary.

The program also addresses issues of empowerment for young women with entrepreneurial skills through trainings in entrepreneurship and business management skills to help them move away from being dependent on the men in their lives which usually results in  increased abuse and infringement of women`s rights.
