UZIMA Youth
UZIMA actively encourages gender equity in all its activities

Training of UZIMA Youth on the basics of gender equity and equipping them with skills and techniques for promoting this is a key program area that UZIMA youth address. Successes observed are that:

  • Both young women and men are active in nurturing their talents through participation in theatre, poetry writing and rendition, song and dance as well as engagement in economic empowerment activities.
  • Both young men and women hold leadership positions in the youth groups and in the foundation.
  • Young women are in greater control of their lives.
  • Both male and female UZIMA youth are now active advocates for gender equity in their communities.
