Entrepreneurship: Women in Agri-Business

"I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. Don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. You have to get up and make them." ~ Madam C.J. Walker

STEAM Education & Entrepreneurship for African Women & Girls.

Women account for more than 50 percent of Sub-Sahara Africa’s population. Unfortunately, an estimated 42.8 percent of female youth between the ages of 15 and 24 are illiterate, according to the United Nations Girls' Education Initiative. It is, therefore, no surprise that girls lag behind in basic education and trail considerably in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education. 

Women Entrepreneurs for Africa (WEforAFRICA) is guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as The Global Goals, and is specifically aligned with goals #5 - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Stand with WEforAfrica as we sow seeds in the future of African girls and women, including those with  disabilities, to make up for lost ground and move ahead to thrive in the 21st century’s competitive economic environment. Together, we can develop the most powerful force on the continent.
