The African Women Education and Development Partnership Forum » Who we are

Who we are

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 partnership and our central focus is on how essential it is to create partnerships between what was traditionally the implementer and the beneficiary; between women themselves and between various approaches to development. Our interdisciplinary approach also brings together other organisations working for the advancement of women. We encourage girls to go to school and stay in school through our books and clothes donations.
