Providing young women with career skills and financial knowledge required prosper at work.
Through the Anakazi Leaders project, we provide mentorship opportunities and internships to young women and girls in Zambia to allow them to gain essential career skills and access expert knowledge. Our training goes one step further by helping participants improve their confidence, become decision makers and greatly contribute to the development of their communities.
I grew up being told, you can never do the work a man does, but since the Anakazi Leaders project came in, it helped me learn to value myself. My self-confidence has improved! The training made me realise that I have potential.Tionge, a young changemaker working on the Anakazi project.
The training, mentorship, and support have helped young women become decision-makers and actively participate in male-dominated industries. It has improved their livelihood and in turn, encouraged other women to take up leadership roles in their communities.
