The Africa Liberal Network (ALN) together with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF), and other likeminded liberal institutions have been supporting the Africa Liberal Network’s Women’s Leadership Programme. The programme trains female politicians from ALN member parties to develop knowledge and skills in order to win candidate nominations and upcoming elections, or to be elected to internal party leadership positions.
The programme also aims to dismantle barriers to women’s political participation and selection as candidates. So far we have featured leading women from across Africa, representing Morocco, Senegal, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Zambia, Ghana, Somalia and Botswana.
The project also falls within our global campaign titled #FemaleForward. We ask, how can women better reach their goals in society, politics or at work?
