Program Overview

The Mawazo Institute is a women-led African organisation that supports early-career women
researchers as they work to find local solutions to global development challenges. Our mission
is to support the big ideas of early-career women researchers and thought leaders in Africa to
strengthen their research, public engagement, and influence on development of the continent.
We envision a world in which the voices and big ideas of African women researchers shape the
future of the continent and the world.

Our programmes support the generation and uptake of homegrown evidence-based solutions
to pressing development needs. We provide our beneficiaries with a package of support that
builds essential non-technical research and professional skills, deepens their networks, and
helps them access mentorship from both peers and experts. Importantly, we support them to
develop their leadership potential, including personal leadership and wellbeing, and visibility
within and outside the academy
