Who we are?

The Christian Women Entrepreneurs’ Network in Africa (CWENA)




CWENA is an organisation for women by women. The heart of this ministry is to serve the women of Africa by encouraging, equipping and facilitating the realization of their entrepreneurial dreams and goals. We are aware of the many challenges that African women face in life but we believe in the power of networks. We believe that when women flourish, their communities will flourish too. Women are primary caregivers and we believe that by caring for them, one is caring for society as well. CWENA commits itself to the economic empowerment of women in Africa.



CWENA is established to inspire, motivate, network, empower and support women to start and develop sustainable businesses and organizations.
