Africa is moving and transitioning from begging bowl mentality to become the breadbasket that she was born to be. This has been said and declared over and over the past years!
It is not just going to happen on its own. It’s going to take exemplary leadership and persistence and hard work. Africa needs servant leaders who are committed to stop the flow of corruption and generate wealth for all Africans through the equal distribution of her immense resources. This will be done using strategic, creative and innovative blueprints.
The conversations we need to be having for Africa are conversations that involve the creation of new leadership, governmental and economic blueprints that will ensure generational change.
On Saturday 17 April, Global Forum of Women Entrepreneurs (GFWE) will be having that conversation with notable leaders on the African continent. Global Forum of Women Entrepreneurs will be hosting its first annual Africa online virtual conference from 19h00-21h00 SAST (18h00-20h00 WAT/BST).
The theme is Redefining Africa in the 21st Century for Transformation.
Global Forum of Women Entrepreneurs (GFWE) was founded to respond to the need to cultivate, develop and enhance the entrepreneurial mindset of women across the globe and in its short time of existence has established presence in a number of nations around the world, including USA, UK and a number of African nations; South Africa, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Eswatini and beyond.
It is a global network that believes that when women are properly groomed and included in the areas of investment, trade and finance they will be an asset for the good of all. Their objectives are achieved through:
- Training, equipping and networking women from around the globe, and Africa in particular, in the area of entrepreneurship.
- Interrogating entrepreneurial options for women that can be accessed through innovative means;
- Ensuring that women are a part of the twenty first century innovation and technological trend.
- Giving back Initiatives through humanitarian and community development projects in every nation GFWE is present.

This initiative focusses not only on raising up women entrepreneurs in Africa, but also on telling the narrative of Africa from the African perspective.
