Young Migrant Women Summer Camp
On August 23rd, AkiDwA held the second annual Young Migrant Women Summer Camp at its offices in Dublin 1. Since 2007, many young migrant women have been engaged with AkiDwA looking for information and support while also participating in many community-based activities. In 2010, a group was formed to cater to the needs of these young women in order to encourage and empower them to reach their full potential individually and within Irish society. This group aims to build the capacity of these women to promote youth governance and build on the networking and communication skills of these young AkiDwA ambassadors. Through interactive discussion, debate and community based education, these women can create powerful and positive change in themselves and their surroundings when given the opportunity.
