Since Peter Burdin Africa Ltd was launched three years ago we’ve developed business partnerships with female entrepreneurs in South Africa and Kenya and Zimbabwean, Isabel Dliwayo has just joined us as our logistics chief.
Our business model is based on the belief that African woman have a massive role to play to transform the continent and education, training, skills and mentoring are required if that is going to be achieved.
In the past three years we’ve supported a range of female empowerment initiatives across the continent from projects to teach girls science and space technology in South Africa and coding in Ghana to training female reporters in Ethiopia and promoting female-led start-ups in Kenya.
So it gives me the greatest pleasure to introduce you to three of the continent’s most amazing young women who are the face of the true Africa – an Africa full of energy and innovation.
Gwendolyn Myers from Liberia is the founder of Messengers Of Peace which is promoting reconciliation and peace across the continent.
Akosua Annabil, the founder of the Ghana Business 2020 group, has been named in the Top 100 most influential leaders in the UK Tech sector.
And Ashedzi Aloo is making a big name for herself in the glitzy world of the Nigerian fashion industry.
Gwendolyn, Akosua and Ashedzi are just three of a whole generation of young African women who are determined to transform the continent.
