AWJ Is The Go-To Hub For Black and African Diaspora Women To Be Part Of An Engaged + Connected Community of Empowered Women.

From Ideas To Building A Community
& Everything In Between

About Us


African Women Journey is a platform that unites African diaspora women to share their stories, talents, energy, resources, and skills, with their peers in the United States and  in Africa in order to grow together through shared experiences.


What makes African Women Journey different is our deep commitment to leveraging the talents, expertise, diversity of our community throughout our platform by amplifying stories, building a community, working together, and sharing resources to bridge the gap and strengthen the connection between Africa and its Diaspora.

We Fund African Women Entrepreneurs

We provide scholarships to African women entrepreneurs to help them access the capital they need to grow their businesses. Our goal is to reduce financial barriers African women often face as business owners through our fundraising efforts.

Our Services

There’s power in women coming together.

Anything is possible when women come together to share their experiences, learn, build new skills, and cheer each other on.

Traveling with Headphones



Focusing on yourself, achieving personal growth by stepping out of your comfort zone, and being part of a supportive community is at the core of all things AWJ. Join us in Zimbabwe for our annual Unplugged Women's Retreat. The Retreat includes personal growth, outdoor adventure, travel, philanthropy, and community—more information to follow.
