Our SHEROES OF AFRICA portal showcases success stories of Women with dreams and especially those who dare to take the right steps to bring their dreams to life.
It covers success stories of women at all age levels (Wonder Kids section covers Africans from age 7 to 12, Super Teens between age 13 to 19 years old and Young Achievers from 20 to 30 years old) and in every sector of the economy (Science, Business, Entrepreneurship, Governance, Technology, Education, Sports, Agriculture, Education, Medicine, Entertainment and more) and also those living with disability.
“Study after study has taught us that there is no tool for development more effective than the education of girls and the empowerment of women. No other policy is as likely to raise economic productivity, lower infant and maternal mortality or improve nutrition and promote health, including the prevention of HIV/AIDS. When women are fully involved, the benefits can be seen immediately: families are healthier; they are better fed; their income, savings and reinvestment go up. And what is true of families is true of communities and, eventually, whole countries.” – Kofi Annan
SHEROES OF AFRICA is not just a portal; it is Rising Africa’s empowering effort at supporting and celebrating our queens. It will be a yearly event held in every country on the continent starting from our base (Ghana) in August. SHEROES OF AFRICA will not only be serving our students and professionals but will also be involved in mentoring the younger generation especially those in deprived and rural communities through various outreaches and projects.
We recently acquired a new standalone domain www.sheroesofafrica.org to help us effectively achieve our goals for SHEROES OF AFRICA.
In www.sheroesofafrica.org, we hope to build a community for our sheroes, allowing them connect with each other and share experiences through forum discussions, contributing articles, attending capacity building and networking events and giving back to society through mentoring and coaching the younger generation and the underprivileged.
At Rising Africa, we put women at the centre stage. We believe that women are powerful and key catalyst for change. Women in Africa are changing the world and redefining possible. They are our Sheroes.
