Thematic Areas


Our Recent Engagements

Have a look at our most recent engagements and the impact created in the communities we serve. 



Through this program we have managed to facilitate the establishment of two girls clubs at Muluma and Chiperere FP schools. This has created a conducing space where the girls are sharing ideas and seek solutions to problem facing them in their everyday life.


Women Economic Empowerment

On this thematic area YOWORI has trained 35 teen mothers in tailoring and designing skills. These young women are doing a group business aiming to grow their business together and to be sharing the profits for them to support their families and their education needs for those willing to go back to school.
