African Womens Development Fund USA

Advisory Board Member

Women across Africa are leading a new era in development. Despite being disproportionately impacted by a range of challenges, their creative initiatives are emerging as the most effective and sustainable solutions. African Women’s Development Fund USA (AWDF USA) understands and supports women’s unique ability to overcome obstacles and develop their own communities, regions, and countries. AWDF USA was created by the Ghana-based African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF), with a coalition of American women leaders, to spread awareness about the tremendous impact of African women-led organizations on communities across the continent. AWDF USA provides a vehicle for effective American philanthropy to Africa that builds the capacity of the continent’s women for social change and sustainable development.

Columbia University School of Social Work

Social Enterprise Administration and Management

At Columbia University I learnt how to create and start up social enterprises. I was also a minor of law and strengthened my background in legal framework development and writing in general. CUSSW taught me that tackling macro issues was important and lead me to start up both my social impact organization GESSL and my Media Platform WCA.
