Young Women for Awareness,
Agency, Advocacy & Accountability

“Through YW4A, young women have the opportunity to take part in several activities that help young women develop a better understanding of the obstacles and problems that they face in society…I hope that we, as young women, reach a point where we are able to lead change, contribute to raising awareness of women’s issues, and train other young women who need to know and demand their rights and protect themselves,”

Wallah, 23, Ramallah, Palestine.

The YW4A Initiative’s strategic objective is to defend and expand the fulfilment of young women’s rights to dignity, bodily integrity and equal participation in decision-making, through the implementation of gender-just policies and laws in Egypt, Kenya, Palestine and South Sudan.

YW4A supports the agency and capacity building of 17,540 young women and 27 women’s rights and faith-based organisations in Egypt, Kenya, Palestine and South Sudan. The objective to enhance their individual and collective transformative actions to advocate and hold decision-makers accountable for women’s rights. This is to be achieved through four interconnected and intrinsically linked pathways.
