DOA annual meeting
Last week we attended the Daughters of Africa (DOA) project annual meeting in Namibia where we got an opportunity to be part of the Daughters of Africa Girls Seminar which was held at Namibia State University.
We also visited a Girls Club session on Gender-Based Violence at Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School.
The Daughters of Africa (DoA) Project aims to instill hope for the future of young people in Namibia and South Africa through training on health, motivation, livelihood, and entrepreneurship.
The project is being implemented by two (2) strategic partners, Hand in Hand Zimbabwe (HIH), an enterprise development-oriented organization and Star for Life (SFL) which has extensive experience in motivational and health awareness. Hand in Hand Sweden, Star for Life Sweden and South Africa offers technical support for the project.
The DoA project contributes to sustainable socio-economic development in South Africa and Namibia through the following target areas, reducing girls and young women’s risk of violence and sexual exploitation, strengthening their control over their sexual and reproductive health and Creating opportunities to secure economic independence for young women.
To achieve the desired result, DoA has adopted customized training facilitated by Hand in Hand Zimbabwe to strengthen the school children’s self-confidence in entrepreneurship.
