African Women’s Empowerment Network “AWEN”, pronounced (Ah “I” Win)

The AWEN concept was inspired from the Ubuntu principle, cemented in sisterhood and evolution. “I Am My Sisters Keeper”. “IF YOU WIN, I WIN”. “I AM, BECAUSE YOU ARE”, and so forth. AWEN is an exclusively global Pro African association of African women, on a mission to develop a well co-ordinated, efficient and effective network for the purpose of stimulating an African centered social support network, and social welfare system for social change, as well as to facilitate the holistic health & economic development of African women, regardless of religion, culture, nationality, political affiliations, or socio-economic backgrounds.

“As women, we are the bedrock of society, and if our relationship with one another is not built on a foundation of love, respect and unity, the community as a whole suffers. The advancement of our nation is only measured by the progress of its women. We are sister’s first and foremost, and do not view one another as competition. As sister’s we are on the same team, working on the same mission to achieve common goals. If “I WIN, YOU WIN”!
