Network for Africa

Network for Africa works with communities in the aftermath of war & genocide. We especially focus on helping vulnerable women and children, with education, job skills training, & psychosocial support.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Network for Africa works with communities in the aftermath of conflict and genocide. We help the forgotten survivors of African conflicts who have been left behind by the world after the fighting stops and the humanitarian aid moves on. We provide training for these survivors in specialised trauma counseling so they can tackle the long-term psychological consequences that often block their community’s recovery. We listen to what these communities tell us, so we can offer them sustained support for their multiple needs. In doing so, our vision is that communities whose social fabric has been torn apart by conflict and genocide can overcome the paralysis of trauma and rebuild their lives with access to education, health and the means to support themselves.

  • Aims

    Network for Africa aims to:

    • Promote rights-based education, particularly for women, so that they are cognizant of their equality and right to fully participate in and benefit from society
    • Provide psychosocial support to survivors of trauma
    • Equip poor and vulnerable people with skills and knowledge that will increase their confidence and help them get a job
    • Promote sexual and reproductive health
