As AWDF has amplified the voice of women and girls and mobilized resources to support their activism, vibrant and vigorous movements have emerged. We have seen the profile of African women elevated at the highest levels of leadership as Presidents and their contributions recognized as Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. While we should be proud and celebrate these incredible achievements, we also recognize the importance of continuously raising our voices and mobilizing to gather relevant resources to sustain and expand our efforts. Being the voice and vehicle for AWDF in the US, we are keenly aware of the opportunities we can leverage and the gaps that remain to be addressed. It is expedient that AWDF USA cultivate and nurture new relationships while deepening existing partnerships with the diverse relationships that have been forged over the years. In order to build on this bold foundation, we must maximize opportunities to increase our visibility, enhance our presence and ultimately mobilize effective resources to uplift the voice, power and soul of African women.
