Who We Are

ElectHER is a party-agnostic organization committed to increasing women political inclusion across Africa through Behavioural Change Communications, Community Building, Capacity Development, and increased access to Social, Human, Technological and Financial Capital.

01

Our mandate entails fostering constructive discussions with various stakeholders (electorate, political parties, media etc), around the issues hamstringing women in politics and how best to solve them through polices and legislation.

02

From male allyship and wider stakeholder engagements, creating platforms for women to Decide to Run, building capacity and de-risking the process of running for office through finance and technology; we are revolutionizing women’s political across Africa.

03

Ahead of the 2023 elections in Nigeria, through civic technology, our goal is to refine how elections are monitored, increase access to public data, enable increased accountability and visibility for elected female officials, and build communities across borders.

From our founder

If you had a chance to change the world, what would you do differently? The opportunity cost of political apathy has simply become too high! Therefore, I encourage you to ‘JOIN US’ today, as we work to bridge the inequality gap in African democracy and push for socio-economic progression.
