Our Vision We are working for the day when African girls and women will live in dignity, are healthy, have choices and enjoy equal rights free from fear of violence. Our Mission We are the African women-led organisation working to end violence against women and girls. From female genital mutilation and child marriage to domestic and sexual violence, we tackle abuse and discrimination – enabling African women and girls to have the dignity, health and equality they deserve. At FORWARD, we focus on personal stories and the bigger picture. That’s why we support affected women and girls on the ground – bringing together communities, developing skills and knowledge, and nurturing young women leaders of tomorrow. And it’s why we work strategically to challenge and support decision-makers and practitioners – conducting community research, building partnerships and creating opportunities to transform lives. For over 30 years, FORWARD has been speaking with one voice to safeguard the rights and dignity of African women and girls, wherever they live. Together, we’re working to create a world free from violence for all African women and girls – and we won’t stop until we get there.
