FAWE (Forum for African Women Educationalists)

The Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) is a pan African Non Government Organization founded in 1992 to promote girls’ and women’s education in sub Saharan Africa in line with Education For All. With Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, FAWE has a network of National Chapters in 32 countries. 


FAWE's vision is that gender disparities in education will be significantly reduced and more girls will have access to schooling, complete their studies and perform well at all levels.


FAWE's mission is to work, together with its partners, to create positive societal attitudes, policies and practices that promote equity for girls in terms of access, retention, performance and education quality, through influencing the transformation of education systems in Africa.


FAWE's goal is to increase access and retention as well as improve the quality of education for all girls within the school system and for women in universities.
