Project description
Inaugurated in 2002, the Women’s University of Africa has a dual mission: - to address gender parity in accessing higher education; - to promote gender equality by contributing to the critical mass of female graduates who will go on to fulfil leadership, social, political and economic roles. This University was developed in partnership with the University of Zimbabwe and the University of Swaziland. It offers undergraduate programmes in the fields of agriculture, education, gender studies management, psychology and reproductive health and houses a farm to develop its animal sciences programme. The university advocates a policy of high enrolment figures for women; women (85%) and men (15%).
