The Global Journal is an analytical publication based in Geneva, Switzerland, and New York, USA. The journal focuses on global issues and discourses and targets an international community of decision-makers.
The selection committee of The Global Journal rated FAWE and other contenders for their innovation, effectiveness, impact, efficiency, transparency and accountability, and strategic and financial management, among other criteria.
Commenting on the ranking, FAWE Executive Director Oley Dibba-Wadda said, ‘It is heartening to know that our work to empower African girls and women through quality education has been recognised by the selection committee of The Global Journal.’
She added, ‘We hope this will give a greater voice to the thousands of girls and women on whose behalf NGOs such as FAWE and others among the Top 100 advocate. Our hope and our objective is that these girls and women will acquire the skills and opportunities to improve and direct their lives and their societies.’
