The Women’s University in Africa (WUA) has unveiled its new campus in Harare’s Manresa Area with government committing to working together with private institutions to ensure all Zimbabweans regardless of their background are given opportunities to further their education.
The new WUA campus unveiled in the capital will see the institution transfer the majority of its faculties to the centre.
Officially announcing the move, WUA Vice Chancellor Professor Hope Sadza said despite challenges which have seen funding constrained, the institution has not been deterred in its drive to empower women through tertiary education.
Guest of honour at the occasion Deputy Minister of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Cde Thokozile Mathuthu applauded the drive which has seen WUA avail opportunities in education to women previously denied opportunity to do so due to various reasons.
The institution was specifically set up to address gender disparities in education by giving a chance to women who never managed to access tertiary education with an enrolment whose bias is 85 percent for women and 15 percent for men.
