100 WOMEN TO CHANGE WEST AFRICA was born out of a commitment to be an international program to empower women, enhance their participation in economic and entrepreneurial initiatives in West Africa and, therefore, in the Macaronesian islands.

West Africa is a very large and complex territory and, possibly, one of the worst for being born a woman. They are still pushed into the background, dedicating fundamentally to the care of the family and subject from birth to the decisions of their families. 100 Women to Change West Africa seeks to be a small producer of changes and to offer them basic tools that allow them to enhance their independence.

The project is part of AFRIMAC, a wider initiative of territorial cooperation between Europe and Africa that has as one of its transversal axes the gender perspective trying to influence in the improvement of the productive potential of women.
