We want to use the pageant to inspire those who feel disadvantaged and to empower them by showing what can be achieved with the right attitude.
We want to use the pageant to inform the audience about issues that are affecting men and women in the Caribbean and the diaspora. Issues such as: female abuse in all its forms. For example we will be working with ‘Wilde International network’ bringing light to their ‘PROTECT THE GIRL CHILD’ campaign.
We want to use the pageant as a vehicle for the people of the Caribbean and the diaspora to unite around a common purpose, which will be to choose their Queen to represent them to the World.
Our main objective, however, is to help raise awareness of issues that are affecting the aforementioned community and to try and affect positive change to those issues.
BEAUTY WITH A PURPOSE!
African women are steadily working towards eradicating media representations of them as a disadvantaged gender. The need to change this perception of African women formed the premise of the ‘Women4Africa’ organisation. Founded 20 years ago, Women4Africa is an organisation that works to empower and enlighten African women across the world. In doing so, they help to demonstrate the positive changes brought on by these hardworking women. Through their annual award ceremony, they celebrate, encourage and motivate women to work towards success. GUBA speaks to Women4Africa, to uncover their plans for the next generation of African women.
Tell us a bit about Women 4 Africa
Women4Africa is a vision for Africa and its Amazing Women. We are an organisation focused on celebrating and empowering Africa and its women by supporting and celebrating their role within their communities. We do so by holding conferences and award ceremonies.
We have our annual May awards where we celebrate the best of African Women. This Year’s award will take place on the 18th May 2013. We hold a conference in November where great African women get a chance to interact, advice and motivate each other as well as the next generation.
Women4Africa also gives to Africa through its Young Africa Writers project (YAW). The YAW project looks out for disadvantaged children in Africa and empowers their creative skills by awarding them with small financial bursaries. In 2012 we supported a small school in Ghana, West Africa
What can be expected from W4A awards 2013?
The Women 4 Africa Awards 2013 will be an exhilarating and informative event. It will be a gathering of hardworking Africans from the UK and around the world time. With up to 1,000 attendees, there will be entertainment from Dele Sosimi (the Late Fela Anikulapo –Kuti’s Pianist), as well as comedy by Funmbi. A children’s fashion show will also be held by Issosey. There will be superb networking opportunities and inspiring speeches all covered by international and local Press.
What do you think needs to be done to improve the lives of women in Africa?
That is a very big question. I think one of the immediate things that need to happen is for society to accept that women have equal responsibilities, leadership qualities and value as men. Quite often, women’s voices are ignored by society and this makes equality quite difficult to achieve. I think if we can solve this issue, we would be on our way to building a more stable society.
What do you think about the GUBA awards?
The GUBA Awards is a great initiative. It is very necessary because GUBA acts as an Ambassador for people with limited knowledge of Ghana. It helps to educate and connect Ghanaians and Africans around the world. I hope that it keeps getting better every year.
