The Women Students Welfare Association (WOSWA) is set to launch Moi University chapter of the association. The launch ceremony is set for this Friday 21st June 2019 at the Moi University Main Campus Conference Room.
WOSWA is a female students’ association based in the University of Nairobi. Its membership comprises all female students in the University of Nairobi and as such is the official mouthpiece and for its members.
However, in recent times, the association has started expanding out of the University of Nairobi into other institutions of higher learning.
WOSWA is on a mission to bring out the best in every woman in the university and all over Kenya by educating, mentoring and through capacity building. To encourage every woman to realize that they play a major role in building the world and effecting change.
Speaking to The Campus Lady Magazine, the outgoing University of Nairobi WOSWA Chairlady Marie Anne indicated that the organization is looking to launch chapters across all campuses in Kenya.
“It has always been my dream to reach out to all vulnerable female students in Kenya through mentorship,” she said.
Ms Anne also said that “this is part of the success of WOSWA towards achieving our dreams.”
The Moi University Chapter launch will take place from 8:00am to 1:00pm.
WOSWA has been vocal in recent times condemning the rampant killing of women in Kenyan colleges. The organization was part of the group that organized the Femicide vigil at the University of Nairobi to protest against the increasing killing of women.
The Moi University Chapter launch will help spearhead the organization’s mission at the Eldoret-based institution.
The organisation recognizes that while it is in order to champion empowerment, we must also appreciate the fact that women empowerment revolves around key issues and factors that have been ignored for a long time hence slowing down the process.
Female students at Moi University are therefore encouraged to register for WOSWA Moi University chapter and become a voice for women empowerment at the institution.
