   ATHENA is recruiting for two consultants in Zimbabwe to support the READY to Lead project

ATHENA is partnering with the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and the Zimbabwe Young Positives to deliver a young women’s leadership project in Zimbabwe, funded by Comic Relief: READY to Lead.

Through READY to Lead, young women will hone their leadership skills through training and mentorship. They will learn how to effectively gather evidence from their peers and advocate on issues that affect their sexual and reproductive health and rights in local, national and global arenas. As the project progresses, their mentees will also grow into mentors to create a sustainable model of young female leadership.

ATHENA is recruiting for two consultants, based in Zimbabwe, to support the project.
