“Obviously, the Egyptian government and the team at the Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership do understand that there is the need to equip young people with the relevant skillset and resources to enable them contribute to the socio-economic development of the world” –Ms. Ohenewaa Constance Ankoma.

After the fellowship programme, Ohenewaa has plans to partner with the Ghana Education Service to roll out a project that will help boost the capacity and confidence of in-school girls to venture into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related fields. She asserts that women can thrive in male-dominated fields; they only need the right skills and opportunities to bridge the existing inequality gap. She therefore invites like-minded organisations and institutions for partnership to make the project see the light of the day.

She also intends to use the skills, knowledge and resources acquired from the programme to strengthen the capacity of her team to better enable them to promote the leadership and inclusion of girls and young women in decision-making processes at all levels, which happens to be the ultimate goal of their ongoing She Leads Project.

We applaud Ohenewaa and her team for their efforts to empower women and girls in underserved communities in Ghana through the Erudite Women’s Empowerment Foundation (EWEF), and for representing Ghana on this global platform.

One for All, All for One!
EWEF!…Making Every Girl Count!
She Leads, We Gain!

Long live EWEF!
Long live Ghana!!
Long live Egypt!
Long live Nasser Fellowship for International Leadership!
