Womens Rights: Making inroads towards gender equality, participation and equal representation in Eswatini
Disabled Girls welfare & Empowerment
EduPower Life Skills
We are dedicated and determined to reach out to and serve a special community of those adolescents who are physically challenged or living with disabilities in Eswatini. In the principle of 'leaving no one behind,' we reach out to disabled young people (mostly women) with education and awareness on GBV, SRHR and life skills training.
SODV awareness campaign
Hhohho, Manzini and Lubombo Regions: More than 3500 women and young people educated about the SODV Act, Bill of Rights, Marriages Act and the Deceased Estate Act. Community leaders engaged towards improving the welfare of women and eliminating GBV. Public debate stirred due to the awareness campaign prompting more constructive public input towards both implementation and reviewing of the laws.

ONE BILLION RISING CAMPAIGN
Since 2019 Women Unlimited has been a member of the One Billion Rising Campaign, Eswatini chapter.
One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, which launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS.
Adolescents and youth in Eswatini do not have adequate information that will enable them to make informed decisions on their sexuality and reproductive health. Young women engage in sexual activity at early ages, and with limited knowledge of Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights, lack skills to negotiate safer sex, access appropriate health commodities, and exhibit poor health-seeking behaviour. Early sexual debut, high adolescent fertility rate, unmet need for family planning, and on-going problems with sexual and gender-based violence (GBV) are the major issues faced by part of the population.
Our role as Women Unlimited is to provide education and awareness on sexual and reproductive health rights, HIV Aids, promote access to medical care and services as well as promote the establishment of national policies and laws towards the same. We seek to end gender-based violence, rape and murder of women and girls and end all forms of discrimination and abuse against women which is also a cross-cutting issue for SRHR. We are also particularly concerned for the disabled young women in Eswatini, who suffer more incidences of rights violations and abuse, in comparison.
