The Global African Union was founded in Ghana by Ms Kim Poole to protect the economic, social, political interest and upward mobility of African Women and their communities with a global membership that transcends 16 countries at present ,a sisterhood network committed to the collective interest of understanding ,empowering ,supporting and improving the socio-economic conditions of African women and girls beyond their geographic location, religion, tribe and class in a sustainable manner.
African women and girl contribute significantly to the social and economic segment of every society particularly in low income and developing countries, unfortunately their roles are often marginalized , as they consistently face the challenge of limited opportunities and their potentials grossly ignored ,in an ever changing world, the socio-cultural and economic condition of the African woman has remained almost static so GASU is positioning itself to effectively safeguard the freedom and security of African women and their families, nurturing inter-governmental relations amongst nation states where women live work and play, GASU is also committed to brokering trade in favour of African women’s collective economy, and facilitating cross-cultural communication and mutual understanding amongst African women globally.
