Women Of Africa: Women Ending Poverty and Violence in Africa in Realization of their Human Rights and Aspiration.
Women of Africa is an international non-profit organization founded by Alice Ukoko. It is dedicated to creating a platform for women to stand together worldwide as stakeholders in Africa and world affairs; drawing on their inner power and Divine Authority to bring about a positive shift in universal consciousness to end poverty and violence in our world.
How do YOU define power as a woman?
What do you feel is holding you back from its full expression in your life? What is stopping you from shining your light?
As a normal part of life we experience barriers and obstacles we must overcome. They may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. Using these hurdles as stepping stones to our success is often challenging and as a result we often get stuck, lose faith in ourselves, and decide to give up.
In the Power of Being a Woman you will meet several women who redefine success and power in our world today. They will teach you how to define and create inner and outer power that is unique to your self-expression.
The Power of Being A Woman is a heartfelt sharing and discussion by each empowered woman about how we as women can step into ourselves FULLY and to share our much-needed gifts with the world.

Alice Ukoko has dedicated her life to raising the profile of African Women globally, driven by her belief that African women need to be recognised as important stakeholders who play a pivotal role in the survival of Africa and in turn the world. She disagrees with the victim construct and negative international portrayal of women and Africa. This negative imaging of African women must change in order to end the growing abuse and violence faced by African woman and girls not just in Africa, but across the world.
Alice’s international campaigning ended direct military dictatorship in Nigeria in 1999 and her humanitarian dedication to women and humanity has earned her worldwide recognition. In 2007 she attempted to contest the governorship of Delta State of Nigeria to directly change the political landscape.
Alice believes that women have Divine Authority to bring balance to the world and to heal Africa of its negative past and backwardness. Alice recently appointed the Regional Director for West Africa to establish the necessary administrative structure to bridge existing gaps between governments and civil society Africa. Establishing the women’s commission in Cote d’Ivoire represents a major milestone in achieving gender equalization, democracy sustainable peace and development of Africa.
