women economic empowerment

Zahara Women Foundation supports and promotes economic empowerment for women living in the Sub-Saharan Africa. Gender inequality remains a huge issue in this region due to cultural norms that aggravates favouritism towards males

A woman in charge of her economic future is a woman with power over her own life.

It is our beliefs that women participating in economic activities allows them to make positive changes in their own lives and communities, with a ripple effect that benefits national economic development.
