We are a Social Enterprise Community committed to driving and promoting opportunities that enable integrated capacity development for women.
From a small group of 30 in March 2013 when we started as a commemorative activity for the UN International Women’s Day, we have since recorded an overall attendance record of over 1,000 women, an indication that Friendraiser Community has gradually evolved into an active Gender and Entrepreneur-Support Group, consistently providing a platform for experience sharing among women in a manner that encourages, inspires, educates, motivates and elevates.
Our Monthly Sessions are convened and driven under 3 Major Series namely:
1. Personal Development & Entrepreneurial Series
2. Health & Lifestyle Series
3. Democracy, Leadership & Governance Series
Every month, we invite and beam the spotlight on one woman who has excelled in her chosen endeavour as can be defined within any of the 3 Series. They provide useful insight, share their start-up experiences and inspire listeners to pursue their ambitions with passion and focus. We are working together through healthy networking and positive exposure to learn new things and re-learn old ones from a refreshing perspective.
Our focus and vision is two-fold:
- To expand our value-base by grooming and assisting disadvantaged women access funding and other skills-based support for their start-ups.
- To sensitize and boost the active participation of more women in the democratic and governance process by 50% in 2019.

Our flagship annual conference She Forum Africa is one not to miss. It brings together the most dynamic and driven women and all the learnings you could possibly amass from such a vibrant sharing and networking space. More information available at www.sheforumafrica.com
At Friendraiser Community, open conversations are the hinges on which the doors of our community rest.
We believe that every woman has the right and deserves the opportunity to LIVE HER DREAM.
