"Social regeneration is about ensuring that the places where people live, now and in the future, create new opportunities, promote wellbeing and reduce inequalities so that people have better. lives, in stronger communities, and achieve their potential."
OUR REGENERATION PROGRAMMES
Consist of our career booster webinar series, ICT/finance related workshops and women empowerment events/campaigns. We have successfully implemented events + online programs to service over 500 young women in Africa. Our Career Booster Series focuses on providing key insights, tips and tricks concerning recruitment and employment at top financial and technology firms which include: Mckinsey, Facebook, Linkedin, Google, Microsoft and many more. Our Regeneration Programs include, our Connect + Code event in collaboration with MEST Africa. We were able to host over 30 technologists and provide a space for them to share experiences, gain key insights from top entrepreneurs and enhance their respective enterprises through a design thinking module.
Additionally, we held our first digital storytelling campaign, #YaaSheWill, that focused on inspiring women and men to recover, reimagine, and replace
the set narratives and scope of a woman’s capabilities. This campaign was a direct rebuttal to histories of injustice and the present-day inequity.
In efforts to create an impact and also promote the core values of YAAW, we have created
two seperate challenges aimed at expanding our networks and impacting lives.
