MEMPROW’s establishment was premised on the awareness that patriarchal and oppressive societal dynamics create barriers to women’s full participation and enjoyment of their rights in all areas of life. The second reason for establishing MEMPROW was to bridge the credibility gap between older feminists and young women who usually perceive each as opposed rather than complementary in gender equality activism. MEMPROW is filling these gaps with through her strategic objectives;
Capacity building programme for girls and young women
Social survival skills training programme; this is rich set of life skills package designed for in-school girls to build their capabilities for leadership, and to equip them with survival skills to navigate the unique challenges and pressures of our rapidly changing landscape.

Personal and organisational management programme
MEMPROW works with individuals and organisations with “minority” populations to equip them for self-leadership and professionalism.
Sexual and reproductive health and rights programme

Together with regional and national partners, we demand for policy reforms, accountability and participate in activities that ensure that voices of our stakeholders are represented in spaces were key decisions are made including with government parastatals, Africa Union, and other regional bodies working towards gender equity
Through feminist conversations and intergenerational mentoring and gender dialogues, we are the springboard for young feminists- we create safe space for girls and young women to learn about feminism and build their knowledge, activism to organise and build strong sisterhood that demand for freedom of all women.
