Women of Africa will be a leading Women Investment Organisation in both the South African and African economy.
The Group is focussed on leveraging its empowerment credentials to acquire and develop businesses in Public and Private sector. The group has a broad based appeal by virtue of its shareholders and their experience to the growing women and the emerging markets purchasing power. We utilise our competitive advantages to create economic value for our shareholders by being actively involved in management decisions of our companies, while simultaneously addressing women in business and black empowerment to meet our transformation objectives.
The objectives of WoA guide the manner in which the group will act, and focus on the group’s desired outcomes:
- to boldly go where no Women have gone before; WoA is focussed on entering the sectors of the economy that remain almost entirely male-dominated despite BEE initiatives to date
- to become operationally influential in its investments, ensuring the presence of Women in all key areas of these businesses; enhancing and accelerating the skills transfer process to Women
- to grow economically and extend this supportive and empowering approach from South Africa to countries throughout Africa.
WoA will set up trusts to support causes that are focused on women abuse, child abuse and HIV/AIDs. The company recognises that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is the single largest threat to Africa’s economic growth and development, and therefore will be engaging in creating awareness at all levels of society. By contributing to a broad variety of community-based organisations, the company endeavours to touch the lives, and improve the living standards, of as many South African’s as possible.
Women of Africa sets new standards of excellence and
professionalism in business. We have enjoyed much success and built
a solid reputation for providing personal service and first
class solutions for all of our clients.
