Help for women to aspire to a better life
Improving lives of women and children - Women Africa International
Women Africa International is a religious, non-governmental, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women, vulnerable children and girls, children and adolescents by enabling and facilitating their access to education, empowerment systems, health services and advocating for laws that protect their basic human rights.
According to UNICEF, by 2013 some 65 million young people aged between 12 and 15 years were denied the right to education, plus 59 million primary school children who dropped out of school. In particular, education opens up and promotes the potential of a child as a proven way out of poverty. In fact, education is the only determinant of future economic status and autonomy. Woman Africa has set itself the goal of bringing and keeping more children in education throughout Africa.
Good education is the foundation for effective female leadership. In Africa there is a shortage of female executives. Even the most talented woman with the greatest potential often has no access to the tools and training she needs to become a leader who can help others escape poverty.
WomanAfrica believes in real, sustainable change in Africa as a result of identifying and developing more leaders in our organisation and the countries where we work.
Women and girls are disproportionately affected by this current economic crisis. We must ensure that women’s energy, skills, strength and wisdom become an integral part of the transformed economic infrastructures that are currently being developed by world leaders.
Therefore, strengthening and investing in girls and young women is part of a comprehensive solution for all of us, now and in the future.

About 65 million adolescents…
between the ages of 12 to 15 years were denied their right to education according to UNICEF (2013). Additionally, about 59 million children within the level of primary education were out of school. Consequently, a confirmed path out of poverty is education as it unravels and develops capabilities of a child. In other words, the lack of education results into inaccessibility to skills and limited opportunities in the labour market. In this vein, education can be seen as one of the major determinant for imminent economic development, self-sufficiency and promote social development. In conclusion, Women Africa is hereby committed to the placement of more African children in the classrooms.
Above all, most African women and girls with talents and potential often lack access to the tools and the training needed to take leadership and lead others out of poverty.
This phenomena results…
mostly in the shortage of African women leaders as also stated in the Sustainable Development Goals Report (2017). We at Women Africa International believe in realistic and sustainable changes in the development and empowerment of more African women within our organization and the countries where we operate. In addition, the principles of Women Africa are consistent with the Sustainable Development 5 (SDG 5) objective, which aims to achieve gender equality and empowerment of women and girls by 2030.
Present economic crisis affect the larger population of which includes a larger proportion of women and girls. Thus there is an urgent need to ensure the vitality, skills, importance and acumen of women. This in turn becomes an integral part of the remodel economic infrastructures which are now being utilized by the global leaders. Empowering and investing in girls and young women is part of a global solution for us all, now and in the future (Grace Marchel, President for the Foundation of Community Development, Former First Lady of Mozambique and South Africa). This statement by Grace Marchel has been transcended as a necessity to which we at Women Africa make a decisive contribution.
