Who we are

The African Woman and Child Feature Service (AWC) is a media-focused, non-governmental organisation (NGO) with a regional outlook and a vision of a media that enhances acceptance of diversity and gender equality for sustainable development. 

Established in 1994, we are pioneers in the field of engendering the media within eastern Africa. We focus on the interface between gender, media and development; working within and outside the media, and at national, regional and international levels. As champions of development communication, we uncover and share quality information on the gender issues affecting women, children and the rest of society. In this way we ensure that voices and issues of women and children are better represented in mainstream media.
