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.
