The United African Women Organization had its first meeting in 2005. Its main objectives are to create awareness on various issues concerning African women and their children living in Greece, to support and fight for their rights, especially for the second generation and at all levels, to create mutual bonds of solidarity between Africans and Greeks, to explore and incorporate the rich African woman heritage into the rich Greek heritage, and to work hand in hand with various social, NGOs and other organizations that stand for justice, non-racial and friendly society for all. Women from five African countries (Sierra Leone, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania) participate in the organization, which is open to all countries of the European continent.
