AWEDP Forum is a nonprofit registered in the United States of America. We are dedicated to empowering women through knowledge and partnerships. Our activities are driven and defined by partnerships between leaders in the local communities and the people whose lives are affected. Our interdisciplinary approach also brings together other organisations working for the advancement of women and the stakeholders within these communities. Currently, the majority of our work is being implemented in several rural communities in Cameroon. However, our vision is to expand the programming throughout the African continent as well as throughout North America.
Our mission is to educate, encourage, and support women towards a greater role in local, national, and international development through education and practical training.
- Educate women and girls on their rights and how to live in peace in their communities where their rights are in total conflict with the culture; while working to change that culture by educating the public at large.
- Build women’s centers across the globe where women seeking social, economic, health, and/or personal growth can have the resources needed to reach their goals.
- Educate young women and mothers in traditional settings.
- Educate women on HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s) and the responsibilities they have within the crisis.
- Help newly emigrated families in the United States get acclimated to a new culture by providing a network of women and families that are facing/have faced similar challenges.
- Establish a partnership amongst women in Africa and the world through networking and partnership.
- Educate and encourage immigration and integration into the western world.
