Women’s Voices for Africa in the UK (WV4A) is a non profit organisation, which was born out of the need to provide a voice for minorities. We work with women across the UK, Portugal, France, Poland, Angola, Cameroon, Ghana, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Mozambique and Nigeria, in particular, as well as having a presence in most other African countries and around the globe. WV4A provides gateway services for women, including:
•Being a voice for people living with Albinism, by creating awareness of their plight and advocating for social and economic inclusion
•Promoting and supporting SMEs (small and medium enterprises) and charities
•Serving those in need during times of crisis Natural Disasters
•Promoting and supporting education across the world Girls Back to School’s project
•Climate change and sustainability, which is a cross cutting priority in all we do
•Diversity and inclusion through entertainment, gastronomy, art and crafts, fashion, sports, music and culture.
We believe in the power of collective action to bring about positive change. Our organisation stands for strong pillars, each representing a vital aspect of our mission: Education, Leadership, Networking, and Health. Together, these pillars form the foundation of our commitment to making the World a better place.
“As a woman, closing the gender gap in mechanical engineering has been my dream. Women make up 49.5 percent of MIT’s undergraduates in mechanical engineering, due to department’s proactive approach. However, meeting WV4A where I was approached to be a speaker for the Bridging Diversity with Technology and Innovation conference organized by WV4A in 2022, made me realise what a difference I make. Ladies we need you and join us for this transformational journey!”
“Being part of Women’s Voices for Africa will utilise my range of experience as a professional woman to tackle cancer together. The beauty of WV4A is a range of women with a different background and the same purpose. Empower women!
Join us for a transformational change. Together we can make a difference”
SMEs are vital to the global economy including the UK, where the government has introduced new measures to help protect and sustain small businesses post-Brexit. Working law gave me wide expertise on how to deal with diaspora communities to support them from a legal standpoint to ensure that the organizations are respecting the law. It is a pleasure to support WV4A as a legal advisor. Born in Angola
“I joined wv4a in 2018 at very young age. I saw my mother putting ideas together and having a passion for supporting children in Mozambique. Each time we went for a holiday we had to visit primary schools and give them clothes, food, pencils and pens. I realized then that there are kids in Mozambique with so very little, so I wanted to help them at any cost.
In 2021 I managed to get my job at Cambridge University’s Churchill College thanks to my volunteer work. I am continuously learning how to make a difference as a champion.”
