YFM in conjunction with Youth Net and Counselling (YONECO) has organized a women’s retreat on 15th October in the Lakeshore district of Mangochi.
The event comes alongside the annual Mother’s Day Celebrations which will among others, promote networking among women.
YFM Station Manager Charles Banda, said the event is aimed at imparting knowledge in women on various issues that affect their daily lives.
Banda said the knowledge will therefore enhance empowerment in various aspects of their lives.
“Women will have various sessions on empowerment, access to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRH&R) and Gender Based Violence (GBV),” he said.
“The retreat will also promote networking and interaction amongst them and share their experiences on many other issues affecting them.”
YONECO is a non-governmental organization that advocates for the rights of women, youth and children.
YONECO established YFM in order to create a platform for the vulnerable group’s voice to be heard.
