Science by Women Programme is the mission of The Women for Africa Foundation (FMxA), contributing to the development of Africa through the drive of its women, is launching the 7th Edition of SCIENCE BY WOMEN programme.
The main purpose of Science by Women Program is to empower African women scientists and researchers to address Africa’s major challenges through research in health and biomedicine, sustainable agriculture and food security, water, energy, and climate change.
Science by Women:
The consequences of uncontrolled development have a considerable impact on women’s lives; but, social, structural, and economic restrictions limit their ability to address the continent’s major concerns. Gender discrepancies in science and technology, both in the public and private sectors, have an impact on Africa’s population.
The ultimate goal of the programme is to enable African women researchers to play a key role in Africa’s transition to a knowledge-based and innovation-led economy by conducting research that can be translated into products, processes, services, and technologies that have a positive impact on people’s lives.
