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.
IWEF’s primary goal, therefore, is to improve the lives and capacity of at least 1,000,000 (one million) African females by January 2020; with a particular emphasis on educating and equipping female children to penetrate and succeed the high-levels of government and industry.
