Uganda Young Women in Leadership and Mentorship Programme

Uganda Young Women in Leadership and Mentorship Programme

Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) with support from UN Women Uganda is seeking applications from young women leaders for the Young Women in Leadership and Mentorship Programme, a Feminist and Transformational Leadership programme to be held under the auspices of the African Women’s Leadership Institute (AWLI) which is a space for catalyzing and nurturing feminist and transformational leaders to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment on the African continent and beyond.

This specific Feminist and Transformational Leadership programme targets dynamic young women in all their diversities including differently abled women, LBQ women and women affected by HIV/AIDS, interested in strengthening their leadership capabilities, feminist analysis and movement building skills that will enable them to effectively mobilize a critical mass of feminist and transformational leaders to transform power relations between women and men by addressing the root causes of gender inequality.

The Akina Mama wa Afrika – African Women’s Leadership Institute was birthed in 1997 and is based on a long standing model of POT (Personal Mastery, Organizing Skills and Taking Action), a framework that provides a powerful and holistic feminist grounding for African women to define, analyze and articulate their experiences of inequalities and devise solutions for sustained change.
