Supergirls: We invite all interested young women from Zimbabwe aged 16-20 to apply for “Supergirls of Zimbabwe”
empowering young women to promote reproductive health and sexual rights in their lives and in their communities
awarded by the Davis Foundation’s “Projects for Peace” grant
Dear friends and activists,
We are glad to inform you that we are launching our initiative “Supergirls of Zimbabwe” with our first two educational leadership training courses which will be held from the 7th to 11th of August in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and the 14th to the 18th of August in Harare, Zimbabwe
The venue of these trainings are The Bulawayo Public Library in Bulawayo and Zimbabwe Women’s Bureau in Harare.
Supergirls of Zimbabwe is a project started in the US by two students of St. John’s College through a grant from the Davis Foundation. In order to be healthy, everybody must be able to talk about sexual and reproductive health in a shame-free environment, and we want to learn how we can create that environment in our communities. We would like to gather a group of women together to talk about sexual health, our experience as women, and brainstorm how we can work together to create an atmosphere where access to sexual health is available to our entire community.
We believe in:
● Teaching and learning through peer to peer discourse
● Autonomy through the power of voice
● Reproductive health as a human right
● Gender equality as a foundation for peace
Join us to add the power of your voice to this initiative!
There will be no costs for the training course: lunches, snacks, and materials are covered by the initiative“Supergirls of Zimbabwe”.
Application forms should be filled out and sent by Friday, 1st of July, 2016 at 23:00h to the email: email@example.com
