Women's Day


An equal world is an enabled world. How will you help forge a gender-equal world? At Donors for Africa, this is How we Achieve Equality!

Over the years, more and more women in development are passed up for opportunities, every day, we meet several women doing phenomenal things in their sector but go unrecognized for their contributions.⁣

Some prefer the quietness of their roles and are not keen on recognition, some would love some more online presence but haven’t had the time. While others really just want to keep making a difference and expect nothing back.⁣

This year, we say NO! We cannot continue to scream equality when more and more women, especially in a closed sector like development, are passed up for opportunities simply because no one knows about them or the impact of their work.

This is why we launched the campaign “Celebrating the Unseen Women in Development” to commemorate the #IWD ⁣

Are you a woman in development? working for an organization or leading one? Tell us via the nomination link about your impact and you will be celebrated across Africa at absolutely NO COST (if selected). This selection is merit-based and a reminder that for every woman working behind the scenes, We SEE you.


This boot camp is for social impact organizations, social enterprises, business owners who desire to understand how to play in the development sector and young professionals (18 – 45 years old) from Nigeria who want to deep dive and understand the rubrics of building a sustainable social impact organization.
