Who is delaying Africa's prosperity? In answering the question, please drop a comment, your ideas, suggestions and thoughts.👇👇👇 Though some African countries have certainly grown more prosperous in the recent decades, but still more has yet to be done. The rest of the world is not waiting.
Today, Africa’s women leaders have every important and an integral role to play in shaping the present and future of Arica. From being in pubic office, in sports, the CEOs of large corporations, owning and running own businesses, managing people, producers of goods and services as well as balancing work and family relationships - their domestic chores, as wives and mothers.
This whole week in Cape Town this topic was the centre of our discussion. With experts from @VitalVoices Washington DC and Johnson & Johnson HQ in Cape Town, we were able to have our discussions built into the design of the Skills gathering workshop. It was also an opportunity for us to participate in attempting to give as much ideas as possible to see how can we unify, bring visibility and honor Africa women leaders and eventually help draw prosperity to Africa for collective impact.
However large or little, as women our contribution to our countries economic growth may be regarded, it should not be neglected. It is clear that contributing to the growth of Africa’s economy is fostering global growth and prosperity.
Alhamdulillah I’m ever grateful for #VitalVoices to connect me with these power #VV100 women from Pakistan, Iraq, Trinidad & Tobago, India, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa and from Uganda my mentor @rehmahKasule could not make it as her flight was cancelled due to bad weather in UK. I'm so grateful. Unreservedly.
We wrapped up the week with a Africa's Women group presentation to discuss all what we had accomplished and our future plans. We all are fully committed, stepping up, taking charge and leading the way to start our Africa women leaders network! #ShapingAfrica
