Our new initiative aims to create specific actions at an individual, organizational, community as well as at national level a shared understanding of the key factors driving economic hardships and HIV and AIDS epidemic so as to minimize hunger and the effect of the AIDS epidemic respectively.

To create a vision of a successful future young feminist group that will inspire people from different sectors to commit to fighting and voicing out discrimination, abuse, sexual violence, and oppression against women.

To identify key actions required to align, intensify and broaden efforts countrywide so as to maximize synergies and more effectively use of the movement to educate more women about their rights, talents, skills and passion.

To influence policies and agendas at different levels to serve as an intervention to realize entrepreneurship development for the benefit of underserved women within marginalized communities.

As young feminist leaders, in everything they do, it will be important to constantly seek out opportunities to work collaboratively with different stakeholders to achieve a vision/goal that is culturally appropriate in issues affecting women.

To acknowledge and inspire respect within their communities in which they work and understand how the community recognizes and responds to issues such as gender, race, religion, culture and politics.

To make a real difference, the group will build concerted, integrated and coordinated efforts with other women and groups across the globe to instill economic freedom for every woman using the medium of communication, media and forums.

We believe that the tutorage, guidance, expertise, and encouragement gained from fine and great women from the AWID forum have intensified and fortified whatever skills and abilities we posses now to strengthen this movement.
In addition, we plan to represent the voice of this movement at any international conferences.

Theme: “Renewing Minds” the Young feminist Leaders will intensify the campaign against Social Ills in communities.

They will outline all the social ills affecting women and wrap them into better and safer communities. Their statement of purpose shall be driven by key personalities globally in realizing this dream.

  2. This project sounds interesting, however I was expecting more of a reference to ‘young women’. I beleive that although women and young women matters are parallel, young women experience social problems and the society specifically and differently from women.

  3. CORRECTION: I believe that although women and young women matters are parallel, young women experience social problems and the society specifically and differently from women.

  4. I fully support the empowering of woman. My goal is to reach out to these woman and help them plan for their future needs. Many of these woman will become the bread winners of the family and when they are no longer around the needs of the people they are leaving behind may not be met.

    I would like to assist these up and coming business woman in my area in planning for their futures.

    I am based in George in the Western Province.
