Social Impact

The Alliance for African Women Initiative (AFAWI) is a grassroots Ghanaian organization, founded in 2006. The background idea was, to stand up for others and work on eliminating existing stigmas, through targeted use of cultural knowledge and creation of local jobs. AFAWI later opened its doors for intercultural exchange and became a home for several students and volunteers from all over the world. Until now, the combination of grassroots work and lively international exchange distinguishes AFAWI from other institutions and makes the achieved results even more special. 

With our projects we are striving to narrow gander gaps and create opportunity and prosperity to empower the vulnerable in society, especially women and children. It is thereby overall important for us to always follow the principle of giving help to self-help and strengthen the country Ghana and its society from the bottom. 

Through a variety of projects within the last 14 years, we were able to bring out real positive change for several women and children. AFAWI´s projects are ever evolving and dependent on the communities needs, meaning we are constantly working on our main projects on site and on the same time trying to develop new contemporary ideas with a collective of engaged individuals from all over the world . This leads to a unique combination in our organization between field work in Ghana and accompanying (social) media performance. 

Evaluating the outcome and social impact of our work and projects, we are today counting several hundred community members as continuous benefiters.
