WLSA Zimbabwe started as a local Chapter of a sub-regional network in 1989. WLSA is now registered and operates as Private Voluntary Organisation (PVO) in Zimbabwe. Its network member countries include Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland and Zambia. The purpose of our organisation is to contribute to the sustained well-being of women and girl children through action-oriented research in the socio-legal field and advocating for women’s rights.
WLSAs work incorporates action into research by questioning and challenging the law, instigating campaigns for changes in laws, policies and plans of action, educating women and girls about their rights, providing legal advice and gender sensitizing communities and leadership.
