Welcome to SWEET Africa Foundation which seeks the empowerment of the 'African woman' through continuous education and training in claiming her rights in decision-making at the socio-political legislative level. Arguably, this in its own right, would allow for her voice to be heard both locally and in the wider society.

 

 

 

Mission Statement:

 

“To provide one stop progressive  empowerment of the African woman in claiming her rights in decision-making at the socio-political legislative level. This in its own right, would allow for her voice to be heard both locally and in the wider society through partnerships with governments on behalf of shareholders and the community.”

 

 

Vision Statement:

 

'' We seek to make sure the African woman is fully represented at senior levels of public, private, professional and economic leadership, as such she shall enjoy equal rights, and have an equal voice.

 

''We seek the improvement of the African woman’s contributions to development, her active representation in the arena of decision-making and to grossly reduce maginalization. To this end, the African woman's socio-political and economic advancement would be promoted within the frameworks of regional and national plans. Rural development is primarily the responsiblity of each country’s government''.

 

SWEET Africa Foundation - Your NGO

 

The SWEET Africa Foundation seeks to empower the African woman in claiming her rights in decision-making at the socio-political legislative level. This in its own right, would allow for her voice to be heard both locally and in the wider society.

 

Until the African woman is fully represented at senior levels of public, private, professional and economic leadership, she shall neither enjoy equal rights nor have an equal voice. The under valuing of the African woman’s contributions to development and the under representation in the arena of decision-making, are the sources of the majority of maginalization.

 

    

 

The African woman's socio-political and economic advancement, has to be promoted within the frameworks of regional and national plans. Rural development is primarily the responsiblity of each country’s government.

 

It is civil society and people directly involved, predicted on an enabling national environment, which combines effective and coherent policies, good governance and accountable institutions.

 

At the 1995 United Nations Beijing Women’s Conference, many African governments committed « to ensure equal gender access to and full participation in structures and decision-making and increased the capapcity to participate in decision-making and leadership.

 

 

 

SWEET Africa Foundation, therefore urges the African woman to claim their rights in being part of the designing process of development and to evaluate herself - what she the African woman needs and what she can contribute. The African woman must therefore, be accorded the right to own and inherit land, and the system of land distribution must be transparent to her, protecting the rights of the poor and the weak in societies.

 

     

 

 

 

The SWEET Africa Foundation, ensures that the African woman’s voice promotes accountability and combats neglect from governments and donors.

 

The Foundation encourages the African woman to claim her rights in participating in processes involving the implementation and evaluation of development programs, patterns of international trade and in adjusting external investment.

 

 

 

 

The African woman plays a very special role as a user and manager of natural resources and as derived from the primary responsibility she holds for food security, water, fuel and family welfare. In households, the African woman therefore, should have the right to work with men in co-creating the space in which they live and in deciding for the future of society to which they give birth.

 

It is worthwhile noting that, the African woman represents about two-thirds of the African population. The African woman produces on an average, more than half of all food that is grown, that is, up to 80% in Africa. To this end, ‘Empowering the African Woman’, accelerates the Engine for Africa’s development.

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 With the vast majority of the poor living in rural areas (three-quarters - ¾ of Africa’s poor population), the African woman is key to ensuring that the governments listen to  her call to put in place the right policies and services, without which no farmer, no entrepreneur nor donor will be willing to invest.  

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT CAN WE DO !    HOW CAN WE GET INVOLVED !
