Preparations and vigorous step-ups are underway to organize first ever Nana Yaa Asantewaa Award in Hamburg City. The “NYA Award 2012” is an intercultural event to empower all females in the society with great commitments and achievements.
Formerly, African woman precisely, was confined to marriage institution and was strictly subjected to her husband’s command and dominion. Today, the trend has changed due to formal education and civilization. They say “Woman empowerment and equal Rights. What a man can do, a woman can equally pursue it”
On this note, motivating and pampering women make them step out of the limits they have drawn around themselves.
According to the event Director, Mr. Emmanuel Asare in a brief interview, explained that,” a woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform. In appreciation and acknowledgement of the efforts and achievements of our females, the general public is hereby invited to join us in celebrating the award- giving day to nominate, select, reward and honor the outstanding females of African origin in the area of civil engagement, business, and media. Etc”.
The theme of the event is “Celebrating our Grandmothers, Mothers, Sisters, Wives and Families”.
