Creating Economic Opportunity

Towards gender financial inclusion through empowerment in economic activity

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goal number 5 is to “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”, and SDG8, is “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”

If women make up roughly half the population of the world and of Africa, then it stands to reason that gender equality is a catalyst for economic growth and sustainability.

In this regard PABWA endeavours to create opportunities to integrate gender equality into the economic agenda of Africa, and implement programmes, campaigns and initiatives to stimulate action and transformation towards the declaration by AU Heads of State, for 2020-2030 being the African Women’s Decade of Economic & Financial Inclusion.

Using the basis of technology and innovation, PABWA looks to the sectors where women are marginalised and advocate for transformation in those industries, while assisting in helping women grow and diversify the sectors they are traditionally are found in.

The Executive Director of UN Women, Ma’am Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka has said “Build back better” of post Covid-19. Let’s use this concept as the basis of economic sustainability and growth, in general.
