WELCOME MESSAGE FROM WWN™ FOUNDERS
To Our Dear Valued Partners, Collaborators, Donors and Members,
Thank you for choosing to partner with us by joining Whole WoMan Network Africa (WWN™). Or perhaps, you are simply taking your time and exploring our unique platform. Either way, we welcome you to WWN™ community! We applaud you for taking this step.
You are joining a phenomenal network of passionate, visionary TRANSFORMATIONAL, ETHICAL, CREATIVE African WoMen & Youth leaders, who have made the commitment to take aligned, collaborative action steps, towards creating sustainable changes and development in their various communities.
When we founded Whole WoMan Network in 2010, we did not consciously set out to formally start an organization, rather, we sought to simply improve our personal and professional well-being and by extension enhance our families and immediate networks and communities. We have continued to build upon that initial lean tradition and philosophy, by empowering one leader at a time, through personal transformation.
Over the years, as we evolved, one of our biggest dreams became to create and connect a network and community of visionaries, change-makers, dreamers, doers, creatives and bold women and youth leaders, all across Africa, (at home and in the diaspora), who commit towards transforming the status quo for the better. We believe that WoMen and Youths are at the heart of this on-going transformation and Africa’s challenges require home-grown solutions, that will also benefit the global stage.
We welcome you to what promises to be an engaging, educating and empowering experience. We believe in integrating ‘bottom-up’, ‘lateral’ and ‘top-down’ approaches.
Our programs emphasize the power and efficacy of focusing on organic growth; one individual, one idea, one project and one community, at a time. We believe in the power of ONE VOICE, ONE VILLAGE, whether it is in under-taking an advocacy initiative or in implementing a project.
To us, every child, youth, or woman, represents the future of Africa. We believe in taking both small incremental steps and massive disruptive actions, implementing pilots and getting the necessary feedback so that solutions can be scaled up.
And at the core of our philosophy are COLLABORATION & CREATIVITY. Through partnerships and an openness to new, boundless thinking, we believe we can effectively create a solid critical mass and scale progress exponentially.
NOW is the perfect time to co-create the Africa of our dreams. TRANSFORMATIONAL, ETHICAL, CREATIVE LEADERS are the primary keys to unlocking the human potential needed to harness the opportunities and challenges of this current era; the 4th Industrial Revolution.
We encourage Africans, at home and in the diaspora, to continue to collaborate and model best practices globally and within the continent, while creatively adapting solutions that align with our unique values, cultures, comparative advantages and terrains.
Once again, thank you for taking action and we look forward to exchanging value with you, either as a volunteer, donor, registered community member, training participant, mentor or as a project partner.
