Executive Summary

The African Women Power (AWP) Network was founded in 2012 to train, empower, and publicize the stories of African female entrepreneurs. In addition to providing a widely recognized media platform, the organization also provides funding. Many of its opportunities are solely focused on women and youth in Nigeria. AWP’s media-centric approach seeks to disrupt received western narratives of Africa by foregrounding and supporting women who drive economic development. AWP currently runs three major training programs combining technology and business education. One program the organization organizes includes webinars for African entrepreneurs featuring African experts. Another provides education in developing business plans and pitch training opportunities to Nigerian students between the ages of 12 and 16. And a final program trains women farmers in northern Nigeria, connecting them to improved agricultural methods and materials.
