About the organisation

Organisation name : HER AFRICA LTD

HER Africa Ltd is a not-for-profit charitable organisation, established in Melbourne, Australia. Our aim is to assist Nigerians, particularly women and families,  in need to lift them from the cycle of poverty.

In 2020, our Water and Sanitation project in Epe involved the installation of a dignified public toilet and tap, increasing the community’s access to safe drinking water and hygienic toilet amenities. Her Africa is proud to have contributed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 - Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

With our social enterprise, we also help to provide sustainable, meaningful, and safe employment for women in Nigeria to bridge inequality and lift families out of the cycle of poverty. We also have as part of our new project to build some classrooms to teach English Language, Mathematics, Science, and IT to young girls that drop out of school.
