Each year, Women for Afrika (WFA) supports women, who have completed their Woman Within weekend, within our community through its sponsorship program.

Our objective is to invest in the women to grow our community, share the knowledge and foster relationships with these women to ensure support to our community through active participation in the work done by Women for Afrika in the South African community.

We are honored that you want to invest in yourself. Sponsorship is specific to:
  • Staffing the weekends
  • Attending workshops
  • Staffing international weekends
  • Attending international training.

Below are the following sponsorship opportunities and the corresponding criteria:
 
Self-sustaining Fund:
This fund is a self-sustaining fund. It is designed to give women who have the financial means, the opportunity to borrow money, interest free, with the intention of paying it back over a specified time frame. These funds can then be re-invested in the personal development of other women on an ongoing basis.
The fund consists of R12,000. The maximum amount per application is R4,000.
The time frame for repayment is within 12 months.

Sponsorship:
This is a non-self-sustaining fund. These funds are generated through fundraising events therefore this fund is limited and is earmarked for those without financial means.
There is a maximum amount per application of up to 50% of the course fee.
