African Women’s Development Fund

African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) is a grant-making foundation which supports local, national and regional organizations in Africa working towards women’s empowerment. Through institutional capacity building and programme development, AWDF seeks to build a culture of learning and partnerships within the African women’s movement. The vision of AWDF is for African women to live in a world in which there is social justice, equality and respect for women’s human rights. To this end, the Fund’s mission is to mobilize financial resources to support local, national and regional initiatives led by women, which will lead to the achievement of this vision.
