APPRECIATING AFRICAN WOMEN AND GIRLS.
African Women Association was founded by Carol Nyazika and Lisa Chiriseri. The two young women are determined to change the perception of their continent and expose African women to what is possible within their own environment and community.
“Unless the women and girls in Africa arise, and we support them in rising, Africa cannot rise. This is the message we want to give.” Lakshni Puri – Assistant Secretary General and UN Women’s Deputy Executive Director
Recognition and honour uplifts and validates any woman. African Women Association (AWA) aims to show appreciation to the women, who are successful in Africa, women who are promoting peace in conflict-inflicted areas and contributing to the increased resources and productivity in their nations.
