BE A CHANGE AGENT
African Women have a responsibility to fill the gaps left by the social system that has retarded progress by neglecting the empowerment of women. The time has come for women to foster the paradigm shift, the time has come for women to do what only women can do for women, the time has come for women to change the status quo for better.
WOMEN CREATING IDEAS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
African Women understand the rhythm of the African Clime from the Boardroom to the Kitchen, and from the farmland to the market. As young executives and mothers, they build the economy and the future. They constitute a repose of ideas for positive transformation across the continent.
