About Us

She Forum Africa is a robust and vibrant community of inspiring women and young females who share a common value for a global society where everyone lives, works, and thrives in their chosen endeavour without the burdensome handicaps of perceived or real stereotypes.

Through our strategic advocacy and influence, we work to foster inclusive sustainable development, equitable access to opportunities, and a shared humanity on the African continent.

Our priority areas include Women Development, Leadership Grooming, Girl-Child Education, Intergenerational Mentorship, Economic Empowerment & Entrepreneurial Growth Support and Women’s Health.

From when we first convened in a room of thirty-five women and young females at our inaugural “Friendraiser Session” to mark the International Women’s Day in 2013, We have since evolved into a pan-african community with regional hubs in Eastern, Western and Southern Africa including a Diaspora Hub. The Hubs are Chaired by women leaders who have distinguished themselves as formidable agents of true development.

Our Vision: To serve as an Africa-led initiative to effect sustainable shifts in our continent’s value systems as they impact women and girls across development and decision-making spheres.

Our Mission: To amplify personal development opportunities for African women and girls through strategic mentoring and life-long learning within a home-grown, Africa-led Initiative.
