Mentoring and Empowerment Programme for Young Women (MEMPROW) was established in 2008 as a feminist organisation that brings girls together in institutions of learning and out-of-school young women from across Uganda to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to become successful, confident, and self-reliant individuals
MEMPROW’s feminist agenda is to empower, mentor and give voice to girls and young women to take charge of their lives and participate in leadership. MEMPROW’s agenda is also an activist agenda seeking for change in the underlying causes of gender inequality, not just at local but international levels as well. They provide spaces for young girls to learn not only from each other but to also learn from women of older generations. MEMPROW believes that building a generation of women who are informed, self-assured, and independent gives them voice to speak out against social inequalities and injustices, which is healthy and important to the communities they work with.
