Promoting equality and justice for migrant women living in Ireland

Ireland
2014 - 2015

Akina Dada wa Africa (AkiDwA), Swahili for sisterhood, is a national network of migrant women living in Ireland. The network was founded in 2001 to address gender discrimination, racism and domestic violence and is the only organisation of its kind in Ireland. As part of HDF’s 10th anniversary funding initiative for smaller organisations, we supported the development of AkiDwA’s sustainability study to ensure the delivery of their vital services into the future.
