HUMAN RIGHTS OF AFRICAN WOMEN
“There is no greater pillar of stability than a strong, free, and educated woman.” — Angelina Jolie
All TAWF’s programs start with an individual girl in rural areas of Africa. We view the world from her perspective and partner with communities to get rid of the barriers to her education. Our programs and projects are aimed at defending the rights of the African Woman and making her become empowered —culturally, economically, and socially.
We strive to promote African women’s wellbeing by bringing an end to poverty and social inequality, by tackling sexual harassment, violence, and stigma, and by clamoring for gender equality. The TAWF advances rights of African women and girls as we believe that everyone wins when women and girls, men and boys in African societies are given equal treatment.
The African Woman Foundation amplifies and celebrates African women’s voices and their achievements. We promote and support African women as active change agents.
