African Views Organization has been promoting efforts to garner consensus on a particular sustainable strategic solution for effective localization of the universal agenda on Gender Equality in Africa with its Anti Violence Against Women Act (AVAWA) advocacy. African Views Organization facilitates a collaborative global intelligence initiative for the Advancement of Women and Girls. Together, and collaboratively, African Views work with several organizations in various countries and has satellite organizations that has been created to promote programs and services advancing the status of women. Many of our partners have been travelling across the distances from all continents to attend the CSW conferences. Our first participation in the CSW55 was our first. And since then we have reached many milestones, touched on different topics and have had the privilege to learn and work side by side with the best visionaries in the field, namely: the Late Professor Surendra Kaushik founder of the Helena Kaushik Women’s University in India, Dr. Sorosh Roshan founder of the International Health Awareness Network (IHAN); The Social and Human Development Influencer Lady Regina Askia-Williams – a Nigerian-born, American-based family nurse practitioner, healthcare and educational activist, television producer, writer, and public speaker, fame as an actress and model, Dr Padmini Murthy, physician, Professor and Global Health Director at New York Medical College awarded the Elizabeth Blackwell Medal by the American Medical Women's Association for her contribution to the field of women in medicine in 2016; Elvira Beracochea, MD. MPH, an international development project manager and coach in over 30 countries, Mrs. Innocence Ntap Ndiaye – High Commissioner of the Senegalese Ministry for Social Dialogue and several Dialogues, and the list goes on.
African Views Organization’s tenure in this field has been consistent since its founding in 2010, when we marked the CSW55. From 2010 -2014, African Views Organization conducted more than 500 episodes of the AV Teleforum, among which 250 were dedicated to topics covering the advancement of women featuring experts on various aspect of the subject from all parts of the world.
AV Teleforum is a virtual forum that connects the local individual to global resources eliminates the challenges of distance, cost of travel, and resources by allowing people to take part in a professionally moderated and coordinated forum conducted by phone and compatible VOIP apps from the comfort of their private domain. The audience can listen live online, social media platform, phone, mobile, devises or on the radio. Audience can ask questions in writing and verbally, it is platform to teach and learn, as well as merely share information about local scale challenges and connect with the global community to explore and find collaborative interest and support worldwide in real time. All these experiences have prepared us all for engaging the historical, contemporary, and future challenges on gender issues more objectively. In 2015, African Views Organization launched three interconnected programs, which are: 1) Anti Violence Against Women Act (AVAWA), 2) Anti Violence Against Women Association, 3) The PINK Africa Project. In 2016, African Views announced its first book publication titled, 100 Peaceful Solutions for Women’s Advancement Across Cultures. The book covers the history of women’s struggles around the world and identifies several types of abuses women face in various cultures with a peaceful solution contributed by different women authors across scholastic and professional disciplines as well as across cultural and national backgrounds..
Just as the Commission on the Status of Women produce different theme every year, African Views Organization has had a different and complementary title for all its parallel events to the CSW. The UN Women, a global champion for women and girls, is calling on countries to commit to establishing gender equality through their 'Planet 50/50 by 2030' campaign.
