recognition, respected and treated justly
And advocating for women’s right to health
On 19 August 2021, AMDAF launches a social enterprise - Ireland's premier ethnic minority interest and multilingual community radio.
GOCOM Radio is AMDAF’s social enterprise, broadcasting unique culturally competent content to our diverse audience. We work in partnership with individuals, groups, businesses and agencies in the community to provide information, promote representation and advocate for change on behalf of ethnic minorities and marginalised groups.
What We Do
We work actively to promote civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of women by supporting all actions towards empowering women and removing systemic barriers to their advancement.
We advocate for better healthcare system on exclusive health concerns that affect women such as breast cancer, cervical cancer, menopause, as well as productive and maternal health.
We adopt Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals, by promoting all actions to eliminate root causes of discriminations against women of African descent in public and private spheres – to achieve gender equality and empower them.
RECOGNITION & JUSTICE
We identify with International decade for People of African descent 2015-2024 and International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. In doing this, we recognise that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected.
INTEGRATION & INCLUSION
We believe people from disadvantaged or minority groups should have a voice in the community and participate with equal rights as host community, to live the life of their dream to their fullest potential without discrimination.
