Proud to be selected as one of the 100 Most Influential African Women in 2020 as part of 'Be a Girl' Initiative. Thank you all for recognizing my efforts and Merck Foundation’s commitment towards building healthcare capacity, empowering girls in education so that they can reach their potential and pursue their dreams. I promise to continue to empower women, support girl education, and build healthcare capacity in Africa, Asia, and beyond.
This is my second time, last year (2019) I was selected to be one of the 100 Most Influential Africans released by UK based New African magazine, for the poignant “Merck More Than a Mother” Movement.
