Gender Equality ​​

When our women succeed, our country succeeds

Importance of Gender Equality ​​

Gender equity is said to be the process of being fair to women and men ensuring that economic, social and cultural attributes and opportunities associated with being male or female are the same.  

We hold the value that gender equality is intrinsically linked to sustainable socio-economic development and is also essential to the realization of human rights for all. The fact that basic human rights are potentially denied based on gender presents an opportunity of unfulfilled potential. Unfulfilled potentials can thwart  socio-economic development which, as a developing country we can ill afford. Hence, through this theme, we will initiate and support activities that promote and ensure gender equality. 

Causes & Projects We Champion

When our women succeed, we succeed as a society. When they fail, we do too. We must therefore ensure that as a society we work towards creating avenues and breaking down barriers so our women can excel.  

Advocacy Forums ​


Advocacy is about creating awareness of various issues that aims to influence political, economic, social and institutional decisions. We believe that in our current highly interconnected and politicised world, advocacy can be an important tool in highlighting issues that we champion.   As many people do not have access to and understand most issues that affect their daily lives. Therefore,  having a group of dedicated advocates who take the time to fully understand the issues, they are able to then inform the public through media channels.

Our Plan

We plan to recruit friend volunteers who are willing to work with on advocating for the various causes that we support, circulating their findings through appropriate media channels.

Women's empowerment


We believe that women’s role in the country’s development should not be overlooked. We believe that empowering women is fundamental to achieving our Vision as they are more likely to be volunteering to assist on many of the causes that we champion. We want to give them the front seat in our vision of contributing to  economic growth, political stability, and social transformation.  We firmly believe when our women succeed, we as a small country will succeed too.  

Our Plan

We plan to offer programs that include raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, and training and also give training related to defence oneself.
