VISION : A WORLD WHERE ALL WOMEN ARE SAFE, INTEGRATED IN SOCIETY AND EMPOWERED.
MISSION : MAFUBO FIGHTS AGAINST EXTREME POVERTY, INSECURITY AND THE VARIOUS FORMS OF VIOLENCE INFLICTED ON AFRICAN WOMEN.

Created by Monique Mujawamariya in 2009 Mafubo is a federation of 36 country association (see Network) sharing the following objectives:  

  • empower African women through financial independence and access to decent housing, 
  • help protect women against violence in urban areas (rape, domestic violence, physical abuse, etc,)
  • facilitate access to health care for the prevention and cure of reproductive system diseases (cancer, post-birth trauma, etc.), 
  • promote equal opportunities in education for underprivileged girls, ensuring they live with the basic conditions for success. 

Mafubo is apolitical and non-denominational. Projects stem from the needs and priorities identified by local teams.and are implemented with local people.
Mafubo is organized so that the impact of its work within a community can be quickly and easily assessed and evaluated. Its effect on communities must be fast and visible.

MAFUBO MEANS WOMEN SOLIDARITY 

Mafubo is a word from the Rwandan language meaning "A woman who has a lot of compassion for other women." By choosing this name for their network, members show their belief that society can improve through feminine solidarity.
