PAN AFRICAN YOUNG WOMEN DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE (PAYWODI)

PAYWODI is a non-governmental advocacy and action organisation for the all round empowerment of young women across Africa with special focus on the less privileged driven by inspirational and visionary leadership.
Young Women are a vital part of the world especially for procreation and immense contributions to the worldís general development and advancement.

General speaking, the basic nature of women is complex and complicated especially for the poor and less privileged young women. These categories of women require special attention and care to enable them grow into responsive and responsible adulthood.

However, experience have shown that not adequate consideration and attention are not been given to younger women in the much advocated socio-economic and political empowerment of women.

PAYWODI recognises young women as a special interest group (SIG) who are marginalized and most often, rarely given a platform to voice their priorities and make contributions to Nation Building and to the achievements of MDGs.

The philosophy of PAYWODI is borne of out of the vulnerability and unique challenges of young women arising from the challenges of negligence, debilitating hunger and pervasive poverty and most importantly the gross lack of socially inclusive opportunities that add value to life and make existence meaningful.

To be the active and result oriented platform that promotes sustainable young women development in Africa.

To promote sustainable solidarity, synergy, networking, collaboration, collaboration and partnership among relevant stakeholders to achieve measurable results in our concerted efforts to make life meaningful for the vulnerable poor and less privileged young women.
