Akina Mama Wa Afrika

Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) is an international, pan-African, non-governmental development organisation for African women based in the UK with an Africa regional office in Kampala, Uganda. Translated from Swahili, the name means 'solidarity among African women', signifying African sisterhood. AMwA was founded to create space for African women to organise, and build links with African women active in the areas of their own development. Akina Mama serves as a mobilising, networking, information, advocacy and training forum for African women, building their leadership capacities to influence policy and decision-making.
