AUW is a nationally prominent university and leading institution worldwide known for gender equity, women empowerment, academic excellence, research, civic engagement and social responsibility
Ahfad University for Women (AUW) is envisioning to be a leading institution regionally and worldwide. This vision requires several steps and changes that AUW has to go through in order to achieve this vision. At the backbone of its movement towards reaching this level of excellence is its staff and students. AUW aims to invest in having a critical mass of leaders, inspiring, effective and visionary enough to bring the desired change and sustain it, thus making AUW a real beacon of light for women in Sudan, the region and worldwide.
We as senior staff of AUW, thought of bridging the knowledge and sharing our skills with colleagues in an effort to contribute to one of the long term goals of AUW in having a critical mass of leaders. This will be the central goal of this training.

Ahfad University for Women (AUW) has established itself as a forward thinking educational institute for women in Africa, providing a necessary foundation for the creation of sustainable and peaceful communities, highlighting the active participation of students in rural extension involvement programs, targeting disadvantaged families and areas, establishing a quota of reduced fees and/or scholarships for rural and underprivileged female students, developing leadership and social civic engagement skills such as in the talents university required program and celebrating Women’s Week and International Food Day.
Since its inception in 1966, AUW has recognized the importance of the active contribution and involvement of universities in and for the promotion of the community. By initiating "The Engaged African University" as a model in which civic engagement is integrated into academic research and extra-curricular programs, AUW goes beyond the classroom and reaches war-affected, displaced, and economically disadvantaged Sudanese communities. Since the 1970s, AUW has served the rural population of Sudan through the establishment of links, collaborations, and partnerships with national and international NGOs, UN agencies, and foreign governments. AUW has also served in a patronal capacity in the creation of the Babiker Badri Scientific Association for Women’s Studies (BBSAWS) in 1979, which was a pioneer in the combat of female genital mutilation (FGM), breaking the taboo and silence to bring an end to the practice. Additionally, the university spearheaded the opening of integrated rural women’s community centers for raising awareness, enlightenment, empowerment, and skills development programs.
Moreover, AUW’s direct social responsibility has extended to surrounding areas, mainly inhabited by internally displaced communities since 1994, through the creation of the Mother and Child Health Clinic (MCHC), specifically providing a unique and integrated program for addressing their socio-economic and reproductive health needs through establishing income generating and revolving funds programs. More recently, the Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Center provides a distinct health care service for physiotherapy among war amputees and children. Furthermore, community engagement has seen the establishment of the Ahfad Trauma, Treatment, and Training Center (ATTC) where mental health needs are addressed by the only trained trauma counsellors in the nation.
AUW is a founding member of the Talloire Network for Civic Engagement and was featured in the Engaged University book. Several of its programs were shortlisted for the MacJannet Prize and last year one of them was among the winning programmes. Recently, and as part of its Golden Jubilee, AUW established the Yousif Badri International Prize for Civic Engagement in Universities so as to foster the integration of the concept and the practice within other universities.
