Women4africa is a UK registered organisation focused on ?celebrating? and empowering ?Africa and its women by supporting and ?celebrating their role in their communities via Conferences, supporting education and Awarding prestigious awards, recognitions and special honours on such women identified and nominated by the public.
?Women4africa? was birthed from a 20 year desire and passion to see women honoured and appreciated in a celebratory way. Overtime, African women have often been portrayed as victims of poverty, violence, and conflict, amongst other disasters. Beyond advocating and engaging them to fight against these negativities, it is equally important to highlight that African women are also ?agents of positive change? in their communities. It is their sheer determination, ambition, passion, talent, resourcefulness and drive which often forgotten in the stories of this women that Women for Africa intend to promote. We exist to support and encourage African women to excel in all they do.
Africa has over 53 countries and a large number of women who are unique and different in their own individual ways. Women of all walks of life tend to face a lot of challenges in today?s society. However, many African women have been great examples of success worldwide promoting peace in conflict-inflicted areas and contributing to the increased resources in their nations. Our popular ?Women4africa Awards? is one of the many ways we celebrate and honour these powerful women. The Awards is one of our major events held annually at a prestigious London venue where a number of nominated women are awarded for their hard work and creativity.
WHAT WOMEN FOR AFRICA DOES
We work in 3 main areas to support African women and girls. We do this by working and supporting ?key charities, policymakers; engage communities and ?Africans themselves to address this crucial issue. To do this, we put together evidence-based projects focused on awareness raising and support, against the backdrop of our key areas of work.
