About IWEF

The Inanna Women Empowerment Foundation (IWEF) was founded in 2007 to help women of African-descent achieve a self-sustainable livelihood for them and their children. We empower African women to take care of themselves by inspiring and nurturing their ambition to be self-sufficient.

Our motto, “to inspire and nurture the ambition of a new Africa” captures the truth that women are the backbone of African society, and our children are the soul of its future. If we want to create a “new” kind of Africa, different from the one that has not achieved its potential over the last fifty years, we have to invest much more in developing our women and children. . .

Our Principal

Continuously identify the various components of a “modern good standard of living.”
Publicize how these components complement and strengthen each other. This map of good standards is what we call our “Holistic Empowerment Matrix.”
Identify within our populations, families or individuals that are living below a “modern good standard”, and enroll such persons into our service programs.

“I thank this noble Foundation, IWEF, for your support in the completion of my school fees.  I can never forget what this Foundation did for me!  ” – Miss Ogochukwou
