“In Africa there is a concept known as ‘ubuntu’ – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.” ~ Nelson Mandela

AWE Books Volume 1 & 2 Are Out Now

These very special books are a celebration of the empowered African women and men living, working, or running a business in Europe. It showcases the immense togetherness and strength that African women in Europe share with women in their homeland Africa. It is written by African women (and men) who are making a difference in Diaspora and their home countries. It covers the exchange of ideas, sharing experiences, and empowering each other. It is the brainchild of the founder Joy Zenz, who founded the African Women in Europe in 2008.
