Who are we?

SahWira Africa International (SAWI)

We are an organization fighting for women’s and and girls’ rights, against racism, poverty and violence. We are Unhu/ubuntu/ntu African feminists who believe in  “no ego” feminism. Unhu/ubuntu/ntu is an African philosophy grounded in the belief that we are who we are in relation to others. It is the feminism of negotiation and diplomacy and collective personhood. Our sisterhood and friendship relations transcend race, class, gender and sexuality. Thus, we work with men to negotiate with and engage patriarchy and teach men the benefits of gender equality. We should all be feminists!
