African Women of Substance (AWOS) (UK)

African Women of Substance (AWOS) is a registered charity based in Wolverhampton which supports, provides services, develops programmes, empowers and advocates for African women and children. The main aim of AWOS is to facilitate the integration of women into the community whilst empowering them to reach and achieve their full potential. AWOS adopted a holistic (One Stop Shop) approach for the delivery of a range of services aimed specifically but not exclusively at African women. The project is targeted at “hard to reach,” disadvantaged women, inspiring, encouraging and motivating them to overcome barriers to improve the quality of their lives and transform their lives. The work of AWOS reflects their understanding of not only the poverty and injustice that many women experience, but also the inherent inequalities that they face.  AWOS takes pride in bringing African Women together to share, empower, inspire, motivate and achieve.
