DWG is run by an all-volunteer Executive Committee which oversees social and fundraising events. The money we raise, funds projects around Dakar, that are approved by our charity committee.

Women working part- or full-time or those who may not be able to participate in DWG day time events and meetings can still join the DWG and participate in the sub-group Dakar Working Women’s Group (DWWG). The DWWG comes together for meetings and social events during the evenings. You can join the DWWG and attend those events regardless of your work status. All DWG and DWWG members are always welcome at each others’ events.

Existing and new members welcome! If you are a new or returning member please register online for the new club year and you can pay your annual membership fee of FCFA 25,000 at our next event.
