The multiple international award-winner and cultural icon, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, known in private life as Dr Joyce Akumaa Dongotey-Padi, has once again been selected as a final nominee in the category of ‘International Humanitarian of the Year’ award organised by the UK-based international organisation ‘Women4Africa’.
She recently received the ‘Twitter With A Purpose Award’ by Pisen Ghana Twitter Awards 2016, and was adjudged the 6th Most Influential TV and Radio Presenter on social media in 2015 by the Ghana Social Media Rankings.
Akumaa Mama Zimbi, who is a Ghanaian women’s rights leader, television and radio talk show host, actress, philanthropist, sex educator, relationship expert and marriage counsellor, is also the host of Ghana’s number one and most consistent radio and television talk show on marriage, love and sex called ‘Odo Ahomaso’ on Adom 106.3 FM and AdomTV.
She is also the founder and executive director of Mama Zimbi Foundation (MZF), a non-governmental organisation which seeks to empower and support widows through its Widows Alliance Network (WANE) project, and also involve in the issues of adolescents.
Through WANE, over 400 widow groupings have been formed in Ghana, with membership swelling to over 8,000 nationwide.
Mama Zimbi has also revealed that the annual National Widows Alliance Conference (NAWAC-2016) will bring together over 3,000 widows from across Ghana under one roof to foster strength and a sense of purpose on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre, La in Accra.
The conference, according to Mama Zimbi, continues to serve as the ideal dialogue platform for the advocacy of a comprehensive policy and legal direction for elevating the standards of widows in Ghana.
The theme for NAWAC-2016 is ‘Empowering Women For The Future’. It is also to celebrate the United Nations International Widows Day.
