".... the entire world and especially the African continent is waiting for the rise of the African woman. The rise of the hardworking, passionate African woman, who is so tenacious, and does what she has to do each day without complaining or expecting a reward - we need to support, encourage, reward and nurture these women. The world is waiting for we women with our passion and our creativity, our inability to look at suffering, and our desire to make a difference, to rise up and take charge."
