US [ AWEC ]
The African Women Economic Consortium (AWEC) is a Georgia registered non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status.
Our vision: to create communities where women have the means to support their families, and their children can have at least the minimum financial stability necessary to sustain a meaningful existence.
Mission: To provide effective and efficient programs to improve the lives of women and children, by improving their economic status, to end poverty.
(16)We seek partnerships, networking and support of women owned businesses through direct sponsorship, and engage in cultural exchange (through the NWALOTA TOURISM PROJECT). NWALOTA is an acronym for Nigeria Welcomes Africans Living outside the African Continent, a catalyst for inter-cultural tourism in Nigeria.
Our business development programs train women in business for success. We assist in completing business profiles and assessments for member businesses upon registration and present the businesses for potential financial support or collaboration directly with the small business owner.

Our Financial Literacy Education program called F.I.N.D ( Financial Independence Not Dependence) is critical in helping women to understand financial obligations and processes in personal and business endeavors. Additionally, AWEC is officially working with the City of Lithonia in Georgia USA, to provide the F.I.N.D program. F.I.N.D is expanding globally in 2019.
AWEC is introducing its Onyinye Program (also known as a Give to receive ) a form of rotating informal savings group arrangement between a group of women who take turns by "Lifting Up", each other. The name is used in Africa (especially Nigeria ). The basic principle is that each member of the group makes a standard contribution to a common matrix. Then each level the total contributions are disbursed to a single member of the group. AWEC has adopted the platform of United Success Network (USN) to achieve this objective.
