SWIDA 16 years Anniversary | He4She Clubs (creating safe and learning spaces for development)

Story By:  Rahamatu-Lahi Zakaria || Sanatu Zambang

Celebrating this 16years and marking the 16 days of activism, it was important to bring members of the HeforShe club that SWIDA-GH has founded in basic schools to talk about what the club does and how important is the club to them as young people.

As HeforShe members, boys are encouraged to support girls when they are vying for leadership positions. They are also encouraged to preach against all forms of violence against the girl child in schools and at home. Savannah Women Integrated Development Agency ( SWIDA GH ) celebrate 16 years of working with youth groups, impacting the lives of young people especially girls and also women in the agriculture sector to boost yield in the hope of giving these women financial freedom. They have done these through advocacy, mentorship, training and collaborations.

SWIDA GH has improved our learning through the library program they introduced to us. ~ Abdulai Kasira of Riyahd Soaliheen Junior High School, Nakpanzoo.

As part of the celebrations of their 16 years anniversary, Sanatu Zambang has produced a three parts Podcast series that feature change-makers in the region who have worked with SWIDA-GH, beneficiaries and partners to highlight their work and the relationship they have built over the years with SWIDA-GH and how they can foster that relationship in the pursuit of ending sexual and gender-based violence in our communities

SWIDA-GH is a great help to the Nation. Through their teaching, our girls and women now talk in public and stand for leadership positions like Assembly Women and Senior Prefects. ~ Mohammed Haruna, Dalungyili Community Volunteer.
