Below is a poem written for Hon Hawa Yakubu on the occasion of world women’s day, this piece of literature made it to the middle pages of Crusading Guide(Ghana, 2005) and the Metro(London, United Kingdom)

On the 3rd anniversary celebration of the passage of the late Hawa Yakubu into glory we (members of hawafoundation) recall the words of this poem which captures in essence; the personality and attributes of Hawa Yakubu

Living The Hawa Dream: 3 Years On!!!!

If you dream it then you can achieve it

Being Hawa : requires reflection in solitude
Sleep begat dreams
Naps may begat Nightmares
Yet Hawa’s Dream does not come to those who fall asleep

Being Hawa : means to be a celebrant of hard work,
zeal, zest and enthusiasm

Dream Hawa : An ever uplifting feeling for the bleak in spirit
To superintend a cathedral of hope
You must live the Hawa’s dream

In unraveling Dream Hawa

D - daring to be different from the very best.

R – Rock in distress moments

E – Endures all vicissitudes

A- Added value to what already exist

M – Monarch of all that she surveys

This dream needs great vision shared

Precision in attaining the mission
Marching to the music of your time

Comes with the Hawas’ dream

Yet the mission as propelled is always timeless.

Bigotry, ineptitude, narrow minded

Prejudice have no place in Dream Hawa

Fallible thou art Hawa

Yet there is nothing wrong

With Hawa that which is right
Cannot fix

A great relief in living the Hawa’s Dream.

NB: celebrating a woman of immeasurable repute on the occasion of world’s women day.
