Partner West Africa (PWA) is a UK-registered, grass-roots, non-profit, charitable non-governmental organisation (NGO). We work to support, protect and empower vulnerable West African children, families and communities.Our core aims & objectives, achieved through a broad range of disciplines, are to reduce child poverty and mortality, improve access to education, protect gender rights, sustainably improve communties, and improve the livelihoods of the underprivileged. 

As a UK-based charity we are registered and overseen by the UK Charity's Commission 
All of our projects & programmes are specifically designed to compliment in word and spirit the aims and objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015; the framework agreed by the international community to identify and help address the most critical humanitarian challenges facing man and women-kind today.

Finally, the 'Partner' in Partner West Africa describes the collaborative approach at the centre of our model. Our focus on collaborative and strategic partnerships builds on our belief that the challenges the world faces today require comprehensive, holistic, cooperative responses. No person or organisation can effect sufficient change alone. So by harnessing the knowledge and skills that our international volunteers (both individuals and groups), academic experts, partner organisations and local and international community members provide, Partner West Africa seeks to design robust and fully inclusive, sustainable solutions to local development challenges.

For that reasonPartner West Africa embodies the values inherent in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No.17: the 'revitalization of global partnerships for international development'.

Our broader aims & objectives include:
  • Improving children's nutrition & hygiene - UNSDG No.2
  • Reducing child mortality through healthcare, immunisations & malaria prevention - UNSDG No.3 
  • Preparing & providing pre-school age children with access to education - UNSDG No.4
  • Providing economical empowerment & reducing inequality for women & girls - UNSDG No.8 & UNSDG No.10 
All PWA development projects and programmes are designed in keeping with the Charter of the United Nations and to compliment the objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2015.
