Make Every Woman Count (MEWC) is an African woman-led organisation which serves as a mobilizing, networking, information, advocacy and training platform for African women by building their leadership capacities to influence policy and decision making. MEWC works to strengthen the voice, impact and influence of African women’s rights advocates and organizations.
Our main activities are enacted through our online portal, www.MakeEveryWomanCount.org, which provides information, resources and guidance to women's organisations, grassroots movements and activists working on the ground to empower women and girls. We provide African women with a platform for sharing ideas, learning and creating linkages to build and establish female leaders in Africa. Through monitoring the participation and representation of women in national and local politics, we produce multiple reports which audit the status and condition of women in each African country. MEWC also implements training to build the capacity of African women.
Our goal is to ensure that African women and girls have a strong voice in all governance institutions, from the judiciary to the civil service, as well as in the private sector and civil society, so that they can participate fully and equally in public dialogue and in making the decisions that will determine the future of their families, communities and countries
