Madrid, 30th January, 2018. The Women for Africa Foundation and the NSIA Foundation (Nouvelle Société Interafricaine d’Assurance) have today signed a collaboration framework agreement by which the two entities will foster joint activities in areas such as education, leadership, the environment and economic empowerment to help African women and girls’ progress and well-being.
With the agreements signed today at Women for Africa’s headquarters by the foundation’s president, María Teresa Fernández de la Vega, and the executive director of the NSIA Foundation, Régis Segbenou, both parties have affirmed their shared commitment to supporting gender equality in Africa through respect for cultural diversity, democracy, human rights and the promotion of a fairer world.
The NSIA Foundation attends to the needs of underprivileged African people, especially women and girls, helping them gain access to education and female emancipation. They currently have projects in Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea and Senegal. The foundation was created four years ago by the NSIA Group, which has 22 insurance companies and 2 banks in over 12 countries in Central and Western Africa.
