Our ultimate goal is to achieve gender equality and economic empowerment for all African women and girls. We will continue to work to shape the policy agenda on violence against African women and girls; by holding policy makers accountable to their commitments to implement Sustainable Development Goal 5, as well as their other global and national obligations.

We will build networks with African diaspora-led organisations – representing African women and girls on national and global agendas through strong, united voices in policy debates, policy development and ultimately positive action.

“Whatever we do to contribute to the development of girls and women in Africa, we must be clear that we are representing African girls and women, not speaking from them.” Pontso Mafethe, Comic Relief – The African Diaspora Women’s Forum, 2015
