Tuwezeshe Fellowship

The TuWezeshe Akina Dada Africa-UK Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Movement, is an international program which seeks to empower a generation of African and African Diaspora young women to become effective leaders in the campaign against sexual and gender based violence. The TuWezeshe Fellowship incorporates a bespoke leadership training for African-Diaspora women aged 18-26 who have a keen interest in SGBV advocacy. During this training, participants are engaged in concepts of self-awareness, power theories, and effective project management after which, Fellows are equipped with the skills needed and a grant to implement their own social action project.  TuWezeshe Fellows benefit from a mentoring relationship with a notable African woman-leader with expertise in their chosen field who supports them in the realisation of their individual social action project. From lobbying policy makers, building new networks and working with local communities through to enlisting the creative arts; TuWezeshe understands that the fight for women’s rights is collective and multidisciplinary. This is reflected in the growing network of TuWezeshe Fellows and Mentors both in the UK and in Africa.
