New Faces New Voices (NFNV)

1. Could you briefly introduce NFNV?

New Faces New Voices was launched in May 2009 as the business and finance pillar of "Multiplying Faces, Amplifying Voices" which was founded by Mrs. Graҫa Machel.

NFNV is a Pan-African network of women in the financial and business sectors. We recognise that women have the potential to deliver a significant contribution to economic growth in Africa. Our role is to advocate for investment so that this potential can be realised.

We believe that harnessing the economic potential of women can collectively contribute to a large-scale and fundamental shift in the business and financial landscape across Africa. We do this in order to reduce inequalities, improve the economic well-being of women and their families, and strengthen African economies and societies at large. Read More.
