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.

This is great. The kuwa Ajabu Foundation has recognised that to be a leader you dont have to be known. There are those who have done greater things than some who are known. Because they dont publicise their activities, they do not get noticed 'where it matters'. Such women can be very good role models and mentors to the common citizenry since they are reachearble as opposed to those we only see on TV (if we have one) or read in the papers. They may even have more to offer if they were to be noticed. Posted on 19 Apr 2011 09:18
