The maiden edition of the event under the auspices of AfricMedia Galaxy in partnership with Women In Aviation–Ghana Chapter, was to honour women who have distinguished themselves in their various fields of endeavour.

They were drawn from fields of politics, trade, health, aviation, media, beauty and cosmetology, food and nutrition, and social enterprise and charity in the country.

The awardees were given plaques and citations. Each winner was given a female student to be mentored.

In her welcome address, the Co-Founder of AfricMedia Galaxy, Maame Biama Akwafo said, the award is to celebrate the distinguished women who have worked tirelessly to bring a difference to their society.

Biamah Awards

“Ghana Most Inspiring Women’s Awards 2019 seeks to acknowledge and honour successful Ghanaian women who had a very tough upbringing but did not allow their poor upbringing to deter them or weigh them down and have been able to reach heights and have also positively contributed to the Ghanaian economy and other economies of Africa and the world,” she stated.

Maame Biama Akwafo added that, AfricMedia Galaxy and Women In Aviation – Ghana Chapter were in partnership impacting generations and creating a learning space for the youth of this country especially the young underprivileged girls.

“We have created a platform to give exposure to girls in deprived areas of Ghana who lack inspiration, mentorship, life coaches and career guides,” she noted.

For his part, Bright Appiah, the Executive Director of Child Rights International (CRI), a non-governmental organisation, who was the special guest, commended AfricMedia Galaxy and Women In Aviation – Ghana Chapter for honouring the women.

“I have worked with almost all the awardees and I can attest that they are excellent in their chosen areas,” he stated.

Mr Appiah used the occasion to appeal to women to spend time with children in rural areas to inspire and model them to become better citizens.
