We are a young women's movement challenging the social exclusion, inequality and marginalization of young women in Zimbabwe. TESHE further defined T ranscending marginalization and exclusion E quality for all Young women S ustainable Livelihoods H ope for a brighter future E mpowerment in all spheres Our name” TESHE” IS derived from the Ndau dialect meaning Together. As young women we need each other if we are ever truly going to be empowered. TOGETHER, we can rise up and see a new country that truly empowers its young women. Our catch phrase as TESHE Young Women's Movement is TARAMBA KUSARA - WE WON'T BE LEFT OUT. We make no apologies for demanding improvement of our social and economic status.
