Welcome to Akina Mama wa Afrika

Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA)  is a feminist-Pan-African leadership development organization that was founded in 1985 by a group of visionary African women in the United Kingdom but later relocated to Africa with headquarters in Kampala, Uganda.

AMwA also has consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.
