The International Secretariat, based in Geneva, Switzerland, coordinates FAS's programmes and serves as a contact point for international organizations, NGOs and donor agencies. The Secretariat is based in Geneva to facilitate efforts in resource mobilization and maximize the visibility of African women's initiatives at the international level.
The staff at the Secretariat consists of the following: the Executive Director; Coordination Officer; Administration and Finance Officer; Advocacy and Networking Officer; Research and Documentation Officer; Information and Communications Officer; Fundraising and Partnership Officer; Monitoring and Evaluation Officer; a Gender Award/Forum focal point, and interns, volunteers and external employees.
FAS's International Secretariat is assisted by the Geneva Task Force, a group of professionals experienced in FAS's priority areas. First set up further to a FAS Team Building Workshop, the Task Force builds FAS's institutional support by providing input and advice on programmatic and strategic direction. Many team-building workshops have been held with the Task Force since its creation in January 2004.
