ZWRCN'S PROFILE

ZWRCN is an information dissemination hub that is central in disseminating pertinent information on a wide range of issues to young women and men. The work being done by ZWRCN aims towards contributing to Gender Responsive Public Services (GRPS) in Zimbabwe and globally. ZWRCN sees the importance of supporting economic empowerment of women as a key contributing factor to overall empowerment of women and thereby to substantive equality between men and women. In our work to empower women, ZWRCN seeks to strengthen women’s position as economic actors and to address their exclusion from economic processes and structures (informal as well as formal). This reduces women’s exploitation, marginalization, and vulnerability; enables them to participate in and reap the benefits of economic opportunities; and build prosperity for themselves, their families, and their communities.
