About African and American Women For Peace (AAW-PEACE)

The African & American Women for Peace, Youth Empowerment and Cultural Exchange Network (AAW-Peace) is a global network of well-meaning women, committed to accelerating the pace of socio-economic development in Liberia, through the implementation of youth-focused programs in entrepreneurship, education, media, arts and culture.  

It is AAW-Peace’s goal to expand the minds of young people, by providing them the platform to experiment with innovative ideas, dream outside the box and grow above the confines of their present realities.  AAW-Peace is driven by the fact that young people, when empowered to think creatively and independently, can develop their own, self-directed exit plans from poverty and dependency mentality.

The conference attracts top industry leaders, academics, celebrities and thinkers, all joining hands to inspire young people.  Connect with AAW-PEACE today to learn more.
