To use various strategies to promote public policy on the human rights of women in Ghana and to network with other like minded organisation to promote the human rights of women in Africa.

LAWA was formed by Ghanaian Alumnae of Female Lawyers, who participated in a Master of Law (LL.M) Degree Programme at Georgetown University under the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) exchange programme. The programme trains lawyers from African countries.

There is also the need to enact laws to regulate the working conditions of domestic workers and raise problems of human rights as well as labour laws.
