“TOGHETHER, ITALIAN AND MIGRANT WOMEN, WE GENERATE A FORCE FOR A CHANGE, CAPABLE OF UNITING CULTURES AND GENERATIONS”.

With this awareness the African Italian Forum has created a meeting space between Italian women and women of the African diaspora: 
• to help the ACTIVE PARTICIPATION of women in public life.
• to promote ASSOCIATION as leverage of change and integration.

We work with the aim of identifying EMPOWERMENT processes suitable for women with a migratory path and to strengthen the active NETWORK for emancipation and female protagonism in Europe and Africa.

Project “African/Italian The development is women”

Proposed by the Abele Group within the ban “Frame, Voice, Report!” financed by the European Union and the Piedmont Region, through the Piedmonts NGOs Consortium, the “Africa/Italian projects. The development is women” proposed to raise awareness of Gender and equal opportunities issues with reference to the fifth sustainable development objective “Enhancing gender equality and emancipation of all women and girls”.
It takes a view from the good practice of women immigrant from Africa (North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Horn of Africa) in Piedmont. They are women who are building networks to become the protagonists in the society they live in, along with Italian associations and women with which they plot paths and experiences. The common objective is making gender equality battles effective, in contact with national European networks of African diaspora.
By presenting their testimony at meetings with schools and youth associations, at specific times and with the realization of a video report, the project made visible some good practices that start “from the bottom” provoking interest, questions, reflections aimed at changing views and attitudes, helping to investigate the female issues with new languages to make visible the positive aspects of the migration phenomenon in Piedmont. With the primary aim of highlighting how gender equality is essential for achieving all the UN sustainable development objectives for 2030.

The African Italian women Forum was involved in an important way in the project’s activities, both for meeting young people from schools and for making the video report “Wanawake-Sisters without borders”. The experience of the Italian Women’s Forum was valued within the tale, starting from 10’50 minute.
