Bringing Women Together for Empowerment, Peace, and Development
The Women Advocacy Project (WAP) is a registered non-governmental, not for profit trust for women’s empowerment. The organization was created in 2012 by a group of women from different communities of Harare. WAP was established after the realization of inadequate attention given to the issues that are affecting women and girls. The organization is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of vulnerable and marginalized women and girls in communities through holding advocacy campaigns and lobbying for the right of the voiceless. WAP also seeks to promote women’s socio-economic rights through the implementation of socio-economic empowerment projects.
WAP’s vision is a society where women and girls realize, enhance, and maximize their social, cultural, economic, and political potential as citizens of Zimbabwe. Our main goal is a world free of child marriage, a world where girls and boys enjoy equal rights, where girls have access to education and are given the same values as boys.
