VOW Initiative

About Me: 

The Voice of Women Initiative (VOW Initiative) is a women/girls and human rights initiative that explores the power of the web in sharing a global voice of women and girls from all over the world. VOW Initiative is inspired and promoted by young people from different parts of the world who dare to think that they can make a positive change in the world and are taking bold steps in achieving this goal. This Initiative is non-governmental, non-religious and non-partisan.

Objectives

To support the development of girls and women on different issues affecting women’s lives and raise awareness
Working on other areas of leadership skills that empower girls to be self-reliant and confident that they can be great agents of change
To train and develop a new breed of citizen and development journalist with keen interest in women and development issues
To create a welcoming space which inspires girls and women to think and make choices in an accessible environment that transforms them as agents of change.
Women from different parts of the world have similar challenges. Women experience high rate of violence, sexism, inequality and discrimination and their voices are not being heard. This platform encourages women to tell their story (particularly to mainstream media) and to tell it their own way. This platform is open for women from all over the world. VOW Initiative website has articles, videos, art, and different forms of campaigns and advocacy tools that you can use in your different communities, organizations, schools and clubs. If you will love to be a part of this community of women social entrepreneurs who dare to think out of the box and make a positive change, send us an email to vowinitiative@gmail.com
