Mission Statement

To empower girls and women through continued investment in STEAM education, leadership development, and entrepreneurship.

Description

Established in 2015, Women Entrepreneurs for Africa (WEforAFRICA) is a U.S. based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with operations in the United States and several countries in Africa.

Women account for more than 50 percent of Sub-Sahara Africa’s population. Unfortunately, an estimated 42.8 percent of female youth between the ages of 15 and 24 are illiterate, according to the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative. It is, therefore, no surprise that girls lag behind in basic education and trail considerably in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education.

Women Entrepreneurs for Africa (WEforAFRICA) is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as The Global Goals, and is specifically aligned with goal #5 - Achievegender equality and empower all women and girls.
