Pam Samasuwo Nyawiri, multi-award winning founder of unique handbag and accessory design company, Vanhu Vamwe, has just been recognized for her groundbreaking work by the AWA African Women Association and their 2016 prestigious African Women Awards, picking up the Creative Visionary Award.
Speaking about this latest award recognition, Pam, who is also an author, journalist and social entrepreneur, said: “This is perhaps one of our best awards as it symbolizes recognition of community building and not popularity or status. One of the most powerful commentaries received was that the award had recognised "an 'individual who is visionary and creative, who births an idea and it becomes a reality by pushing the boundaries and increasing the standard of an industry and raising awareness of the world around and beyond.” Very very proud. A great way to end 2016.”
The AWA African Women Association was founded by Carol Nyazika and Lisa Chiriseri and aims to show appreciation to the women, who are successful in Africa, women who are promoting peace in conflict-inflicted areas and contributing to the increased resources and productivity in their nations. The AWA African Women Awards honour outstanding and established African women who are chosen from nominations received for their inspiring work, their vision, and for being role models who are not only successful in their own right, but who positively contribute to the African continent.
