Silver Spring, MD - December 2, 2011
For the first time since its first publication in 2008, Afrikan Goddess Online will honor one of its own with the coveted Goddess of the Year designation. Just announced a few weeks ago, the buzz and excitement this new undertaking has generated has left the founder and publisher of Afrikan Goddess Online speechless.
"I am beside myself with joy that has rendered me silent," said the founder and publisher, N. Amma Twum-Baah. "To have something that was once nothing but an idea, a thought, a dream, and to finally put that idea into action and watch the buzz it's generating, the excitement and response it's gotten so far, has left me speechless."
The award is the first of its kind produced by an African-oriented, female-inspired publication to specifically award African women with charitable causes throughout the continent and beyond its borders. The award was created to increase awareness of the humanitarian spirit most African women possess, to celebrate the charitable causes of African women, and as a way to cast African women in a positive light against the general world-held view. The award also seeks to foster communal appreciation for the changes women are increasingly making in the lives of their communities and how their kind and compassionate hearts are impacting the world at large.
The award ceremony will take place in Spring/Summer 2012. A specific date and location are yet to be announced but will be soon.
