Who We Are
“AWAA” is a social enterprise which aims to manage a network of influencers, dedicated to the empowerment of women in agriculture, arts and crafts, especially in rural areas, enabling them to become autonomous, productive and competitive.
The Awaa Vision
Awaa is a network of women in the agricultural sector and influencers, dedicated to empowering women in agriculture, especially in rural areas, enabling them to become self-reliant, productive and competitive.
Awaa covers the four sub-sectors (agriculture, livestock, fishing/fish farming, aggro-forestry, aggro-industry, and all forms of art and handicrafts).
The Awaa Mission
Agriculture plays an important role in the socio-economic life of the African continent. The rural development sector occupies 75% of the active population and contributes 52.8% of GDP. Besides, reports predict an exponential growth of the global population by 2050 to 9.2 billion people with 2.3 billion in Africa. Today, about 240 million people are malnourished. To ensure food and nutrition security, we must triple agricultural production. Women are the backbone of the African agricultural sector. From farm to fork, African women play a role in the entire agricultural value chain, whether as farmers, ranchers, processors, traders, workers, entrepreneurs or consumers. Although their influence on the continent’s booming agri-food sector is undeniable, they are unfortunately still confined to low-productivity, unprofitable subsistence farming. As a result, it becomes imperative to implement solutions in support of their efforts to attain profitability and competitiveness.
