Women Advocacy Network is a social group that seeks to educate and empower women to strive for academic excellence, occupy leadership positions and promote women participation in all meaningful activities and decisions affecting their lives and positively impacting the society in which they find themselves.
The network group is originated from University of Energy and Natural Resources but with the hope of having its chapters in other Tertiary institutions. WAN is made up of diverse students (women) regardless of their political, religion, gender, cultural, ethnic origin, background, creed, apolitical persuasion, social standing. WAN works at mobilizing and harnessing the human, intellectual potential and capacity of the women and channeling them to valuable projects and activities.
