Who We Are
We are a community based organization from Zimbabwe founded in 2018 with the aims to address socio-economic challenges that women and girls are facing in acquiring opportunities and resources to fully participate in sustainable economy.
The organization also focuses on women’s involvement in governance and leadership processes with the aim to develop the community whilst nurturing the environment both in peri urban and rural vulnerable spaces through trainings, advocacy and awareness raising.
Wy We Exist
Women and girls often carry the heaviest burden of poverty by virtue of their reproductive roles and/or household division of labor. Economic reforms have intensified their workloads by increasing their participation in formal and informal labor markets as well as shiftingthe burden of the care and economy to them.
As a result, in our communities, we experience long-standing inequalities in the gender distribution of economic and financial resources which has placed women at a disadvantage relative to men in their capability to participate in, contribute to and benefit from broader processes of development.
Despite considerable progress on many aspects of women’s economic empowerment through increases in educational attainment and share of paid work, deeply entrenched inequality persists as a result of discriminatory norms and practices, and the pace of change has been slow and uneven across regions. Women continue to be absent from key decision-making forums shaping the allocation of economic and financial resources and opportunities, which further perpetuates gender inequality.
Sprout Women Empowerment Trust was established to create spaces for women both in peri urban and rural areas to learn skills and acquire knowledge to participate fully in the economic growth and governance of their communities.
The organization applies a people centered approach such that our programming is based on the priorities and goals defined by the women themselves and supports their own livelihoods strategies. The approach allows us to build on people’s strengths in order to ensure the sustainability of our interventions.
