Panos Institute West Africa

About the organisation

PIWA is a member of the Panoses Network, which includes eight autonomous Panos Institutes. Through sensitization and advocacy, the Panos Institute of West Africa aims to create a space in which African citizens live under a democratic government, human rights are promoted, and social justice is strengthened. Thus it works to continually distribute information that advocates for social change, develop institutions that can spur social change, and to develop inclusive media.
