The #DiasporaChangemakers Campaign aims at highlighting the roles of the African diaspora women in bringing about advances and positive change in women’s rights in African and Europe and what the African Diaspora and international community can do to support and empower them.
Progressive change happens when women with experience, expertise and knowledge come up with a vision, empower with their strength and resilience and inspire with the collective power. Change is sustained when these women are empowered and supported over time. Their numerous contributions to the African development have proven to be successful in bringing about meaningful change in women’s life due to their ability to find solutions, keep positive, mobilise support and make their collective voice heard.
Meet the African Women #DiasporaChangemakers, discover their stories and support the positive change.
