About us


Nyawa United is a humanitarian project promoting gender equality and empowering rural communities in the Southern Province of Zambia, through sports, health and educational programmes.



This project has three main activities. We are upgrading the local mothers' shelter, mobilising girls into sports activities and building a community library. 

Our Mission

Our Mission

To build and sustain a vibrant movement for girls and young women in Nyawa through sports, health and educational programmes.

Our Vision

A world where females do not have to bring a chair to the table, because they are already seated.

If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair. 

- Shirley Chisholm, The First African-American Congresswoman
