To establish a violence-free Africa fit for all women and children.
The mission of Women And Children’s Empowerment Network in Africa (WACENA) is to establish and maintain a reliable platform through which the voices of women and children would be heard and respected.
In carrying out this mission WACENA performs various functions, as follows:
- Gives priority to advocating for the human rights of the women and children and their invisible movements, groups or activities in their respective communities.
- Focuses attention on violence due to religion, culture or tradition, inequality, discrimination, poverty, violence against women and children in conflict situations, or as a result of natural disasters and those who are at risk and vulnerable on multiple fronts.
- Offers legal intervention to the victims of sexual abuse and neglect in order to realize their civil, cultural, economic, and social rights, including the right to development.
- Monitors and evaluates the impact of its work through the substantive benefit that is accrued through it to beneficiaries around the Continent in particular and the world in general.
The ultimate goal of WACENA is to enhance income, protection, equality and development for women and children.
