ANWLD is committed to empowering women and children from the African continent and around the globe, through mentorship programs, providing scholarships, Foster care and sheltering poor women and children and victims of domestic violence. The association also provides counseling for women and children, Health & Hygiene educational programs, workshops, seminars/vocational training and disease preventive education to both women and children.
The goal of ANWLD is to alleviate poverty among women and children in the continent of Africa through education using grass roots efforts. The CWCD will serve as a center to educate, train and temporarily house, poor women and children and those affected by domestic violence. The center will also have a clinic to treat women and children who are below the poverty level. Our success is measured by the success of our targeted group.
