The African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) is a regional, membership-based non-governmental organization (NGO). It operates through Sub-regional and National Focal Points (NFP) most of which are women’s network or umbrella organizations. FEMNET was set up in 1988 to share information, experiences, ideas and strategies among African women’s NGOs as a strategy for strengthening women’s capacity to participate effectively the development of our continent. This is done through advocacy, capacity building, communication and networking.

To steer FEMNET’s leadership in the period 2017-2019, FEMNET members elected the following dedicated and passionate team, who provide an oversight and role for the Secretariat:-
