Make Every Woman Count

Make Every Woman Count | Flying Kites | Scoop.it
Make Every Woman Count's (MEWC) mission is to provide accessible, timely and accurate information, resources and tools to support and strengthen the work of African women’s rights advocates, grassroots, and activists to effectively promote the economic, political and social rights of African women and girls; and to inspire and support young African women to be agents of social change in Africa. MEWC works to ensure that African women's rigths are fully achieved so that they can participate and influence decisions that affect their lives; and fully participate in the economic, political and social life of the continent
Kate Larson's insight:

Laura Subin -- "I have done a lot of consulting for a London based ngo working towards women's rights in Africa. They're called Make Every Woman Count. I worked with the Directors of MEWC and Akili Dada to design and write a proposal for funding for a project that would have, among other things, offered young women from Nairobi's poorest communities training in and access to new technologies. We didn't get the key grant we applied for but have the project design to use to apply to different sources."
