The Center for African Women Economic Empowerment (CAWEE) was established in 2004, registered under the Ministry of Justice, as a non-profit, non- governmental organization. Starting 2014, CAWEE changing its name to Center for Accelerated Women's Economic Empowerment (CAWEE) was registered as a membership organization, licensed under the Ethiopian Ministry of Trade.
The Center's other focus activity targets working on value-chains through the provision of technical skills/marketable skills to grassroots women (the poorest of the poor) and connect them to markets through women owned and managed Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), existing and emerging/potential exporting companies, where in this respect the Center works on value-chains of different sectors with the ultimate purpose of empowering the supply capacity of the exporting SME companies.
CAWEE’s membership in the five focus sectors, the Center’s Board is structured
in representing members in the respective sectors.
Thus, the five CAWEE Board
members represent in the Board their respective sectors.
