This is the virtual community of the African Women's Development Fund USA, a growing worldwide network of almost 300 Pan-African women philanthropists, caregivers, activists and others devoted to promoting our leadership for social change and justice. Visit www.usawdf.org to learn more about AWDF USA and our sister organization, the African Women's Development Fund. Click here to learn more about our history, goals, and accomplishments.
Joining the network is simple and free of any cost. Your education or profession does not matter. We come from all walks of life but share a commitment to giving to advance our communities in Africa and America.
Just create a profile in our private, online community. Answer the questions about where you currently live, your town and country of birth, as well as a description of the type of community giving or volunteerism that you do now or would like to do in the future to address challenges in your community.
There are also many ways you can get involved with the PAWPNet online community. You can post blogs of your own, share your story, seek advice, or get support for your various projects.
Most of all, thanks for connecting. We take on many roles--mothers, wives, daughters, philanthropists, volunteers and more. But wherever we come from what we share in common is a deep passion for helping our communities help themselves. Thanks for being a part of the growing Pan-African Women's Movement--strengthening African-descent communities and women's futures wherever they are.
USA Executive Director, African Women's Development Fund USA
