Empowering Africa Through Gender-focused Innovation

At Africa Trust Group, we are dedicated to pioneering a future where gender equality and intersectionality are at the core of economic and social development. Our multifaceted approach spans research and advisory, training and consulting, and gender-lens investing. We believe in creating sustainable impact through tailored solutions that address the unique challenges and opportunities at the intersection of gender, race and African development.

Our Mission Drivers

Our mission is driven by three key factors: addressing gender disparities, tackling intersectional challenges, and employing a nuanced, informed approach to create a more equitable and prosperous future for all.

  • Addressing Gender Disparities

    Despite progress, Africa still faces significant gender disparities that hinder economic growth, social development, and sustainable change. Gender inequality manifests in limited access to education and healthcare for women and girls and underrepresentation in leadership roles and the workforce.

  • Intersectional Challenges

    The unique challenges at the intersection of gender with other social categorizations—such as race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status—further exacerbate disparities. These inequalities diminish the well-being and potential of individuals and impede the overall development of African societies and economies.

  • Nuanced, Informed, and Intersectional Approach

    Addressing this complex web of challenges requires a nuanced, informed, and intersectional approach that recognizes the diverse experiences and needs of all members of society. By tackling gender inequality head-on, we can unlock new pathways for inclusive growth and development, creating a more equitable and prosperous future for all
