CELEBRATING AFRICAN WOMEN IN DEVELOPMENT.

Celebrating African Women in Development (AWID) is a campaign organized by Donors For Africa Foundation to commemorate “International Women’s Day” on March 8th.

This is a campaign designed to find, document, and tell the stories of African women leading change in development. These are women who are often unseen. Some of them run their organizations while much more lead in outstanding roles within their organizations. 

We call these women the “Invisible Thread that Holds the Tapestry of Development Together”.

We see them, we recognize their efforts to humanity and to change the African continent. Today, we have chosen to celebrate them because they matter and their work matters.

 

Meet the selected women for the 2021 International Women’s Day Celebration:
