Description

ABOUT FAS

Femmes Africa Solidarité (FAS) is a women's organisation founded in June 1996 by African women leaders representing different nationalities and professions. It was created in response to the explosion of violent conflicts currently tearing apart the fabric of society in Africa.

FAS has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and observer status with the African Commission for Human and Peoples' Rights (ACHPR).

MISSION AND OBJECTIVES

FAS aims to create, strengthen and promote the leading role of women in the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts on the African continent. It does so through advocacy to bring women's concerns to the attention of national, regional and international bodies, and through the implementation of tangible programmes to enhance African women's capacities to assume and maintain their role in leadership and decision-making, especially in the spheres of conflict resolution and peace-building.
