The Young Women’s Democracy Academy (YWDA) is a three-month capacity-building programme dedicated to empowering young women between the ages of 18 and 24 with the knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their political participation.

The Academy consists of a combination of theoretical and practical modules to offer both high-quality education and an opportunity to gain practical skills and to strengthen gender analysis skills of the participants. Whether participants are interested in political parties, movement building, or running for public positions, the YWDA offers a space to explore and strengthen these interests from a gender perspective in an open and intellectually stimulating learning environment. After completing this rigorous programme, the graduates are expected to be better equipped for political leadership.
