get involved

Any woman of African background can join African Women Australia (AWAU) Inc and participate in advocacy, community support and training organised.

AWAU relies on the support of volunteers to carry out its work and encourages women of African background to participate.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us. AWAU partners with local non-government organisations, state and federal government agencies in NSW and SA. Find out about our networks

AWAU's advocacy encapsulates research, consultation and the collation of information and issues impacting the lives of African Women, their families and communities. 
AWAU offers flagship training on rights and representation skills to enable African women to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to represent themselves and their communities at all relevant levels of Australian society. 

AWAU fosters an empowered African community through talks, conferences, advocacy and training.

AWAU provides training on Human Rights for African communities and service providers as well as training on  representation and leadership skills.
