Women and Youth for Social Justice
The Campaign! (WYSJ)
Promotion of Equal Rights & Social Justice for Women, Young People and the Vulnerable


Kibagare BAWA Girls project was initiated by YWCAA in partnership with the African Women Development Fund (AWDF). It applies sports, culture and creative arts as tools for Prevention and Advocacy on HIV/AIDS, GBV and as a means of long term economic empowerment for young women, out-of-school, and other disadvantaged girls under the custody of bar waitresses/grandmothers residing in Kibagare informal settlement in Nairobi Kenya. The main objectives of the project is to identify talents/life skills, and categorize them in to sports or creative arts and be fine-tuned in to activities aimed at economic empowerment; build stronger understanding on drugs and drug addiction and the negative effects; undertake sensitization on HIV/AIDS, sexual reproductive health and rights, gender based violence; and to nurture leadership among young women and girls.
