Donors for Women Empowerment in Africa

Most African women, in common with women all over the world, face a variety of legal, economic and social constraints.

There is a wide gender gap in the education sector in Africa. In some places, women are regarded as being the equals of men, but their roles are nevertheless different. So, women traditionally look after the homestead, while men find jobs outside the home.

Though African government is committed to providing equal education for girls, in practice girls drop out from school more than boys. There is a need of promoting women’s rights and empowering them in the society. Many foundations in Africa and around the world are putting their best possible efforts by providing grants and other such programs to overcome this issue.

We have created a list of such foundations that provide funds for women empowerment in Africa. Download the resource guide on “Donors for Women Empowerment in Africa” available exclusively for our premium members.
