Who we are

The African Woman and Child Feature Service (AWC) is a media-focused, non-governmental organisation (NGO) with a regional outlook and a vision of a media that enhances acceptance of diversity and gender equality for sustainable development. 

Established in 1994, we are pioneers in the field of engendering the media within eastern Africa. We focus on the interface between gender, media and development; working within and outside the media, and at national, regional and international levels. As champions of development communication, we uncover and share quality information on the gender issues affecting women, children and the rest of society. In this way we ensure that voices and issues of women and children are better represented in mainstream media.

 

 

Our Vision

A media that enhances acceptance of diversity and gender equality for equitable development.

 

Our Mission

To promote diversity, gender equity, social justice and development in Africa through media, training, research and content development.

 

Our Beliefs

The beliefs on which our work is founded are:

  • A vibrant and inclusive media environment is crucial to equitable development and social justice.
  • The content and structure of the media should reflect the diversity of society.
  • The media is a platform for giving voice to the voiceless
  • For many years, women and children issues have been marginalised by the media
  • Research is a means of generating information, creating awareness and improving knowledge on gender
  • A just society has institutional frameworks and mechanisms that ensure equitable distribution of resources to women and children
  • Advocacy is a tool for empowering women and children.
