What is ABANTU
ABANTU exists to strengthen the capacity of women to participate in decision-making at all levels, to influence policies from a gender perspective and to address inequalities and injustices in social relations.
We seek to achieve this through, advocacy, training, research institutional development and networking with other organisations committed to the same principles. ABANTU is currently focusing on the following key areas of development as contained in the 12 Critical Areas of Concern in the Beijing Platform for Action, and echoed in The Women’s Manifesto for Ghana: governance, climate change and peace-building. We produce an informative quarterly magazine that focuses on the gender implications of policies: ABANTU NEWS. The magazine is distributed to NGOs, members of parliament, funding and development partners and individuals.
