What Drives Us
Our Work in Africa
AFJN received grants for our Women’s Empowerment and the Africa Church Together Against Corruption Projects.
AFJN Women Empowerment Project in Africa
This project assists African Women religious in shaping a new vision of their role in society by working to change the structures that keep people in poverty and deprive them of their dignity as God’s children. It builds and strengthens a coalition of African Women Religious at the local, regional, and continental levels to work for social justice and bring about a needed change.
Africa Church Together Against Corruption Project
This three-year project has mobilized Church leaders to fight corruption and promote just governance in Cameroon, Liberia, and Ghana. AFJN sets out to address corruption in Church-run social services including hospitals, medical facilities, and schools, in collaboration with the local dioceses and communities, to facilitate the development of anti-corruption programs.
Join AFJN in our grassroots US Advocacy campaigns throughout the year where we engage members of both the Legislative and Executive Branches of the US Government, African Diplomatic Corps, religious leaders, and the US public on various important issues affecting Africans.
