Women Students Mentorship Association, WOSWA
BACKGROUND Our background is traced back from the university of Nairobi women students’ welfare association, which has been in existence since 1986 at the University of Nairobi. Having served as leaders at women students welfare association since 2015, we created a remarkable impact that saw many female students generate confidence towards personal development, leadership and education in the varsity. This drove attention of other female students from other Kenyan universities both private and public who wished to be part of the organization. This therefore incited us to think outside the box on the way to incorporate all Kenyan University female students in our organization.
As Women Students Mentorship Association, WOSWA, our aim is to equip female students in all over Kenya with the requisite knowledge and information on bodily autonomy through participatory group education intervention, led by mentors and peer champions, so as to build girls’ self-esteem, knowledge of girls and women rights and sexual reproductive health rights (SRHR) and wellbeing with the goal of supporting girls to imagine and realize gender transformative life trajectories and prevent teenage pregnancies and GBV.
Girls and Women Empowerment
WOSWA is keen on working with girls across 47 counties to ensure that we have ZERO TEEN Pregnancy in Kenya. We equip girls with the right information on GBV protection; prevention and response as a strategy to avoid teenage pregnancy.
Zero Teen Pregnancy
Our mission is to ensure that teens go to school, concentrate on their academics and build their future careers without getting pregnant. Pregnancy is a huge load and responsibility that can stop our teens from achieving their full potential.
Our membership is open to all female students in the kenya, both in primary schools, secondary schools
and universities and colleges. Please keep in touch if you wish to join us. Thank you.
