Building vibrant and tolerant democracies
The Swaziland Young Women’s Network has produced its first ever newsletter – produced by young women in the country, for young women in the country. The issues range from gender-based violence to empowerment through soccer, from marching for sanitary wear to the first indepth interview with a successful young woman.
we exist to be a common voice that advocates for participation and recognition of all young women in Swaziland, To build the capacity of young women on human rights, gender and leadership skills; believing that self-awareness, unity, “sisterhood”, confidentiality and commitment are our vital values for our sustainability; world where young women equally participate in issues of economic advancement, political and social spaces and are accepted by society and their voices are incorporated in all national development processes and the legislative and policy environment comprehensively protects the rights of all women. So that we can achieve a generation of vibrant women who freely exercise and assert their rights.
