FAWE Africa Empowers Newly Elected Board with Comprehensive Induction Training

The Forum for African Women Educationalists of Zambia (FAWEZA) has announced plans to conduct a one-day induction training for the recently elected Board of Directors of FAWE Africa. 

The induction, scheduled for January 21st, 2024, in Lusaka, Zambia, aims to equip the new board members with the necessary knowledge and insights to effectively steer the organization towards its goals over the next three years.

FAWE Africa, a network comprising 34 National Chapters across the continent, recently held its General Assembly in Nairobi, during which eleven members were elected to the Board of Directors. 

In adherence to FAWE’s constitution, the General Assembly convenes every three years to assess organizational progress and elect the Governing Board.

The primary objective of the induction, according to FAWEZA, is to ensure that the newly elected board comprehensively understands their roles and responsibilities within the organization. 

The training will cover a wide range of topics, including an overview of FAWE Africa, board roles and responsibilities, organizational policies and procedures, strategic goals and objectives, financial oversight, stakeholder engagement, team collaboration, and continuity and succession planning.

The selected consultant will employ interactive and participatory training methods, incorporating case studies, group discussions, and practical exercises to enhance the learning experience. The training materials and session outcomes will be documented in a comprehensive report.

As a pivotal player in advocating for girls’ education and gender-responsive policies across Sub-Saharan Africa, FAWE has been actively working towards eliminating obstacles that hinder the full participation of girls and women in education. 

The organization, founded in 1993, has grown to become a think tank on matters of education for girls in Africa, with a presence in 33 countries.

Qualified and experienced firms or individuals interested in providing consultancy services for this induction are invited to submit their technical and financial proposals to the Executive Director of FAWEZA via email ( by December 22nd, 2023. Details of the reference can be obtained on the FAWEZA website and Facebook page.

This induction training marks a crucial step in empowering the newly elected Board of Directors to lead FAWE Africa effectively, ensuring the organization continues its mission of transforming education systems and empowering girls and women through quality education and training.
