WEAF – Women Empowerment and Advancement Forum
As part of Center for Ethics and Sustainable Development (CESD)’s gender equality, equity and women empowerment initiatives, CESD introduces WEAF. It is Women Empowerment and Advancement Forum (WEAF).
Our operational maxim is securing a significant place and resounding voice for women in the era of knowledge-based economies.
Our vision is to be a support network for women at all levels, to help one another navigate crippling and stifling challenges to living fulfilled lives, having a voice in matters that affect us and to contribute significantly to sustainable development.
Women all over the world are indeed sisters though tribe, tongue, religion, pedigree and proclivity may differ; these challenges are peculiar to women in varying degrees simply because we were born as girls.
Our Invitation to you
We invite you to share this vision, buy into it, broadcast it, volunteer your skills, time, resources in as many ways as we can, to co-create ideas, to support and lift up one-another as well as to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)’s vision 50:50 by 2030.
