We welcome Y-Fem our new Partner

YFEM LOGOY-Fem was founded in late 2009 out of a frustration that young women’s voices were still invisible in the independent Namibia in public spaces. The feminist movement of young women was not vibrant and invisible. Y-fem was born out of a dream to document the herstory of young Namibian women through a feminist lens. It was born to support and strengthen young women’s groups by creating safe spaces for young women to lead and organise themselves. Y-Fem main focus area is on building leadership on women’s human rights, sexual Reproductive Health and Rights of young women and young lesbians. We work in 4 regions: Khomas, Erongo, Otjizonzupa, Oshikoto with women below 30 years. We advocate for comprehensive sexuality education in Namibia. Y-Fem is not a membership base organisation lingers more of a collective voice as it forms part of a broader feminist movement in Namibia.
