To round up the week, we are highlighting some of the Female Empowerment Charities across Africa and the fantastic work they are doing. Women are one of the most robust yet most vulnerable members of every society. Women are more likely to face injustice ranging from gender inequality, rape, domestic violence, lack of education. Despite the odds, it’s encouraging to see organisations committed to making a difference in the lives of women across Africa. If women empowerment matters to you too, please take a moment to support these worthy causes.
Here Are Five Female Empowerment Charities Working To Empowering Women Across Africa.
Women 4 Women Initiative
Former Miss South Africa Cindy Nell-Roberts Founded the charity. Women4Women is a foundation which focuses on the empowerment and upliftment of women. According to information on their website, one of the core functions of Women4Women is to raise funds for less fortunate and previously disadvantaged women who cannot afford to pay for their education. The foundation also facilitates self-improvement and skills-development workshops and lends a helping hand to other female-focused charities across South Africa. Their ultimate goal is to help women improve their earnings, living conditions, confidence, and to help them secure a better future for their children.

Solar Sister is a movement that cares about the well-being of people. One of the missions of the Nigerian charity is to eradicate energy poverty by empowering women with economic opportunity. Founded in 2010, Solar Sister has supported over 5,000 entrepreneurs and also distributed over 400,000 clean energy products.

Organizations Supporting Girl Child Education And Empowerment
Women for Water
Likewise, Women for Water is a global water challenge platform committed to supporting the empowerment of women and girls through water. As a multi-media platform, the charity drives collective action through brand and consumer engagement programmes. Again, the charity currently supports projects across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The goal of the organization is to reach as many women, girls and communities as possible by 2030.

CAMFED is a female empowerment charity that advocates for the education of the girlchild. They are a pan-African movement revolutionising how girls’ education’s delivered. Just like the Women4Women initiative, CAMFED focuses on multiplying the number of girls in schools. Not only that but also accelerating their part to livelihoods and leadership.

REACH OUT CAMEROON
Last but not least, Reach Out Cameroon like the other Female Empowerment Charities is a women and youth charity. The charity was founded in 1996 by a group of medical doctors and other professionals within the healthcare sector. The founders were concerned with the plight of the rural people, especially those in the hard-to-reach-areas around Cameroon. Given the medical background of its founders, Reach Out Cameroon aims to support underprivileged groups within the communities. Their goal is to tackle health issues, create wealth and help make capacity building to improve livelihoods. Donate to a good cause by visiting reachoutcameroon.org
