We believe that women, through the critical role they play in African society, hold ‘the key’ to the continent’s growth. AKILOKONY CBO therefore promotes women’s equal access to economic resources so they can unfold their capacity to transform their environment and the continent at large.
Gender Equity & Human Centered Development
Globally, women and girls continue to be disadvantaged in terms of resource use, access and ownership just because they are women. Through AKILOKONY CBO human centers development, we have managed to increase access to basic education for the girl-child and to keep her in school.
Educating girls ensures women have equal access to life’s opportunities, decreases child marriages; decreases infant and maternal mortality and enables women to work as full citizens of the world.
