Resume:

This six months intervention has the overall objective of facilitating informed participation of young women aged 16-24 in local democracy and development processes in Chipata district of Zambia, where they have the biggest chance of influencing decisions around their socio-economic condition. At the core of the challenges facing young women in Chipata district is lack of recognition of young women as a community stakeholder that ought to have a voice in developmental affairs of the district and have equal access to government economic empowerment programmes just like male-young people. Through this intervention a platform for young women’s civic participation will be established to provide space for young women’s engagement in development affairs of the district and have a forum to advocate for equal access to government youth empower grants and defend their rights.
