Launch of Web News for young women

By Richard Lee | March 28th, 2012

A new online publication by young women in Zimbabwe for young women has just been launched.

The first edition of The Web News came out at the end of March 2011. Produced by a team from the Web for Life Network, the first edition of The Web News focuses on a number of crucial aspects of young women’s development such as leadership, mentorship, life skills and of course our sexual and reproductive health rights.

The Web for Life extends its gratitude to its development partners, namely the US Embassy, the Ford Foundation and Oxfam Canada for their different forms of support for young women's programming and activities in Zimbabwe.

The Web News is intended to be a package that no young woman should miss out on - with its aim of being informative and entertaining as well as short and sweet.

The hope is that the Web News will become a key mouthpiece for young Zimbabwean women, who have been urged to share their views, experiences and concerns.
