What Happens when Young Women Mobilize and Organize
We would like to congratulate one of our grantees, the Zimbabwean girl-led organization Katswe Sistahood, one of 20 recipients of the With and For Girls Award, a global initiative to support remarkable local organizing.
Katswe Sistahood, which was selected from a pool of 125 nominees, received the award on Monday November 16, 2015 in London, has been active in ensuring that young women and girls in Zimbabwe have access to their sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR).
They continue to provide SRHR services and legal protection in an environment where there is limited access to these services because of religious beliefs. This is what happens when resources are entrusted to young women who organize and mobilize for change in their communities.
