Query: Women's centers at Lusophone African universities

I have recently seen a list being compiled of all women's research centers and similar entities at African universities. It did not include any Lusophone centers.

I know about the Centro de Coordenacao dos Assuntos do Genero de Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, and the Mozambique branch of Women and Law in Southern Africa, but have not found other centers despite some searching. If anyone knows about other centers with or without a university connection, please let me know, and if possible include a link.

Obrigada!
