The recently launched Savara Women’s Advancement Program by Sauti Sol vocalist Savara Mudigi is not messing about.
The SaWA tournament at Camp Toyoyo and the SaWA Concert gave hints as to the scale of ambition it was looking to portray, and now it wants to sow those seeds.
The SaWA program aims to inspire and motivate young women to live impactful lives and reach their full potential with an end goal of availing training for all young women in Kenya.
The SaWA program comprises of eight full day seminars over a period over the course of four months to October 2017, as well as a boot camp for those who successfully complete the course.
