Femme Politics is a social action project that empowers young African women leaders. Our incubator program is a collaborative program designed to help young African women leaders succeed. Together with our partners, we accelerate the growth and development of young African women leaders by funding and supporting the activities of African women breaking new grounds in business, the non-profit sector and/or politics.
Are you a young African women starting a new business? Do you need a mentor? Funds to grow your business? Or to fulfil a legal/regulatory requirement? Do you need funding for the application fee to run for an electoral position? Help with branding your non-profit organisation? Femme Politics is here to help.
