Economic Development in Africa
While the ability for women to contribute meaningfully to the economy has been a historical issue in Africa, we are beginning to see a shift taking place in the millennial age group with more young women entering into business and entrepreneurship. The women on our network are primarily focused on ensuring that African women are able to create lasting wealth and create employment in their communities. When women are equipped with the tools, opportunities and support they need, they can and will succeed in transforming the business landscape, pioneering new innovations and solutions.
Governance and Leadership
In a continent where less than 40% women hold public office, MTWA seeks to develop young women politicians, women who engage on all levels of government and connect them with mentors who have overcome challenges in breaking the mould. We connect young women who are already working in these spaces to address ways in which we can create our own tables vs. seeking a seat at table that is disconnected from the needs of society.
Human Rights and Community Empowerment
Women and children are the most adversely affected by poverty and violence. Through our network we partner with women leaders in civil society to advocate for social justice and the empowerment of communities. Human rights are at the epicenter of Africa's development and MTWA is committed to equipping grassroots with tools to support their initiatives and amplify their impact.
