Using a combination of mass media, social mobilisation and advocacy, we aim to improve the quality of life and health of young women and girls and the communities they live in, in Southern Africa through advancing substantive gender equality (equity) based on active citizenship and principles of feminism and social justice. It is driven by the recognition that women's rights are human rights and are fundamental to health and development.
