The Council

The Council - Nalafem Feminist Collective

Welcome to NalaFem,

The Nala council consists of 17 women leaders under the age of 40 who are experts in various fields including academia, social movements, civil society, philanthropy, public administration, private sector, entertainment and multilateral institutions. We advocate for the Africa Young Women Beijing+25 Manifesto and the implementation of the Action Coalitions commitments towards the Decade of Action and the Africa We Want

Our mission is FEM – Foster, Enable and Mobilize young women from Africa and the Diaspora, to bridge between policy and implementation, intergovernmental and grassroots spaces as well as generation gap.

We demand progress not promises because Generation Equality cannot afford to move forward without Africa. If you believe half of Africa’s population deserve equal opportunities and lives with dignity, join the collective, amplify Nala advocacy and support the Council mission.
