Description

Our Mission: YOUNG AFRICA WOMEN INITIATIVE (YAWI) provides women survivors of war, civil strife, Gender based violence and young women in distress with tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies changing Africa woman one at a time. Our vision is for Africa woman to live in a changed world with integrity, peace, prosperity, respect and free of any oppression. Philanthropic Goals The goals of the YAWI as a philanthropic institution are: • To invest in the efforts of African women who are engaged in innovative efforts to develop their communities. • To increase the amount of resources available to women and women's projects in Africa. • To advocate with other donors and policy makers, for resources for African women. • To establish alliances and build relationships with other institutions within and outside Africa, individual and organizations committed to promoting and protecting women's rights. What we do YAWI works with socially excluded women in five Africa countries where war and conflict have devastated lives and communities. Each woman we serve has her own story– loss of loved ones, some murdered, others of physical and emotional trauma, homeless (refugees), and internally displaced in their own country. Most have endured a struggle for survival. In YAWI we enroll women in our one-year program which are community based they learn job skills and receive business training so they can earn a living. They come to understand their rights and how to fight for those rights in their homes, their communities and their nations and become leaders. >
