Spanish currently has over 500 million speakers and about 21 million people study it in over 100 countries, of which more than one million are in Africa. The objective of the Africa with Ñ project is to promote Spanish as a tool of development of the African continent and especially for African women.
In order to achieve this goal, the Women for Africa Foundation has launched a series of initiatives, such as the partnership with different Spanish universities so that African female students can access different programs of language immersion and improvement in our country; as well as through the organization of a Congress of African hispanists in Ivory Coast in 2014; or by the recent collaboration with the Cervantes Institute, who has granted this year a total of 10 scholarships to african women for them to study Spanish in its center located in Rabat, Morocco.
