Chapter of Young Women and Girls
CYWAG enables young women to be able to address the challenges they will face throughout their advocating journey through leadership opportunity trainings as well as workshops and sensitization sessions on human rights, women’s health and rights and feminism.
Why CYWAG Is Important
The empowerment and involvement of young women in leadership continues to be the core priority for CYWAG. While ICW along with partnering networks will continually advocate for the health and rights of women, it is crucial that the young women themselves are involved and play a central role in the sustainable development of CYWAG through decision making opportunities.
As the first international Chapter for Young Women, Adolescents and Girls, CYWAG provides the opportunity for young women to be decision makers at all levels, advocates, activists and leaders and not just seen as victims or service recipients. It also allows for young women to talk to each other, make connections and share our unique experiences.
