The Women in Maritime Africa Association (WIMAFRICA) is made up of female maritime professionals, leaders, and entrepreneurs throughout the African maritime sector (and related areas) from all the countries and various regions and sub-regions of the continent.

Meanwhile, the aim of the Association is to increase the visibility of women in the maritime sector which is perceived to be a male dominated sector. It also includes cooperation in building capacity, training, education and development of entrepreneurial projects in order to contribute effectively to global efforts towards Women's Economic Empowerment, Representation and Leadership in Maritime and the Blue Economy.  The establishment of WIMAFRICA is to contribute effectively to realize the African Union Agenda 2063.

The Organization, Women in Maritime in Africa (WIMAFRICA), was created on March 26th, 2015 in Luanda (Republic of ANGOLA) in partnership with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) of the United Nations while the Statutes of the Organization were adopted in July 25th 2015, at the AU (African Union) Headquarters, in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) by 11 Countries.

WIMAFRICA is part of a Network of several other International Maritime Organization (IMO) recognized regional women in maritime network worldwide.
