Economic Empowerment


The Issue: Systemic gender discrimination, the impact of conflict and inequalities are severely impairing the dignity, status and economic opportunities of women and girls in Africa.

Why it matters: Engaging women in the struggle to combat poverty and fuel economic growth in Africa is crucial, yet they are being denied education, employment in areas of national economies and meaningful asset ownership.

How we create change: AWDF supports organisations seeking to develop strategies to promote African women’s economic and food security. The projects we back support skills development and positive legislation and policy for African women. We mobilize resources to help women maintain their livelihoods through agriculture, businesses while tackling issues like climate change.
