Looking for African women leaders

The Kuwa Ajabu Foundation ("be extraordinary") is a non-profit organisation which empowers and builds sustainable capacity in the form of job creation for young, unemployed people across Africa. Affiliate partners include the UN, Women In Finance, Menprow and the fully black-owned Blue Rain advertising agency. The foundation's flagship programme in 2011/12 is focused on promoting gender-equality and seeking out 'unknown women leaders' in African society. These untold stories of leadership are translated into moral-based leadership programmes, inclusive of identifying role models that are more easily accessible and ultimately real, the ordinary person doing the extraordinary.
