The ASWNet aggregates information and resources to facilitate Social Work on the African continent. We cordially invite you to join our network. Please feel free to contact us. We believe in African knowledges (rifa), often termed indigenous (vene) knowledges and recognise their roles in building an African social work knowledge base that emancipates social work students, academics, practitioners, librarians, publishers, leaders, communities and researchers. At the centre of this facilitation is use of African languages and values such as those espoused in ubuntu. Our work is transformational.

Our COVID-19 Response

This website was created to aggregate information and resources to help social work practitioners, academics and social work students whose learning, teaching or practice was impacted by COVID-19. In Africa, practitioners, lecturers and students found themselves having to practice, teach or learn online. We create timeless resources, so we are also looking beyond COVID-19. We also aggregate COVID-19 statistics, and provide COVID-19 resources for our readers. We did support the African Journal of Social Work special issue on COVID-19.

Social work is an academic discipline and profession that embraces and enhances long-held methods of addressing life challenges in order to increase social functioning, development, cohesion and liberation using diverse indigenous knowledges and values enshrined in the family, community, society, environment and in spirituality.

We hope the information on this website will inspire you. We have valued and recognised African histories, philosophies, practices, founders, writers, languages and literature, and we hope you, the reader, will do the same. You are welcome to contribute to our blogbooksjournal on developmentjournal on social work and other publications. | Kanimambo | Zikomo kwambili | Murakoze | Maita basa | Asante sana | Urakoze cyane | Twa totela | Twa tota | Twa lumba | Wafwako | Twa sakidila | Aksanti | Merci | Mwebale nyo | Jerejef | Abarrka | Au jarama | Osoko | Ese gan | Nagode Da alu | Likpakpanl | Konkomba | Anilituln | Aw ni tchié | Baarka  | Takuta Mwapicita | Mwaita basa | Tatenda | Obrigado | Choukran | شكرا |
