The Dakar Women’s Group (DWG) is open to all women living in Dakar and speaking a minimum of English. We pride ourselves on the many cultures that find a home in DWG – we have members from more than 50 countries, including our home country Senegal. 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.
