Young Women Coalition –YWC was founded in 2019 and registered as a Non-Government
Community Based Organization (CB0) by young women activists in Katabi to respond to the
rampant human rights violations, abductions, deaths, and sexual harassment cases that were
on the rise in the area.
YWC has reached out to the most vulnerable women in several urban towns and villages to improve their quality of life.
YWC works to break the impediments that have barred women and girl’s involvement in the development process.
Some of these impediments include but are not limited to domestic violence, poverty, unemployment, high literacy rates, early marriages, and bad cultural practices.
YWC is dedicated to promote balanced, respectful, and enriched relations among people by supporting holistic socioeconomic empowerment for the needy communities.
