Our Mission

To be the voice for and on behalf of the African woman in religion, culture and theology.

Our Vision

To be the voice of African Christian women at the grass roots level.

BY CALLING OURSELVES, “THE CONCERNED,”

We are stating that we care deeply about the erosion and destruction of human dignity and life, all life, in Africa.

We are concerned that much needs to be done in the areas of religion and culture to address the social evils that block the experience of abundant life for people and the environment.

We are concerned that unless we name the sin of sexism and work for its elimination, our African religious institutions will continue to marginalize us… We want to join with those who struggle for justice and reconciliation in our continent (Njoroge 1997).
