TuWezeshe Akina Dada is here to contribute to securing the dignity, freedom
and rights of all African women and girls to achieve their potential and
build an Africa that is peaceful, prosperous and equitable.

TuWezeshe Akina Dada (My Rights My Freedom) is a consortium project that brings together four organisations across five countries, led by FORWARD in the UK, to empower a new generation of women leaders. The three year initiative will bring about changes in the lives of young women through developing their leadership capacity to influence and shape decisions about their rights, amplify their voices and strengthen their collective action to be free from gender based violence. Unique to the project is building bridges between African Diaspora in the UK and Africa, to address this common problem.

To do this FORWARD is working with Akina Mama wa Afrika in Uganda, Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel in Wales and Somaliland and Young Women Leaders Institute in Kenya.
