The night started early last Saturday at about 5pm for members of the all-women’s group, ‘Mummihood’, with lavish display of exquisite dinner dresses, on a red carpet.
Headquartered in Accra, Mummihood organised a dinner at the National Theatre for its members to mark the group’s one-year anniversary since its inception last year.
The online network of women with over 50,000 members across the world aims at empowering and inspiring women to be better people in the society.
Members danced and had so much fun amidst music performances from a live band, choreography, and several other entertaining performances.
There was enough food and drinks to enjoy, and an award session to acknowledge some outstanding members. The awards categories included the Most informative Member, Best Hood, Best Dressed, and Top-most Contributor on the Platform.
Speaking at the event, CEO of the group, Ama Owusua Akill took members through a brief history and purpose of the group.
“This is a group of ladies, both single and married to share our beautiful moments–happy and sad, to encourage, and share our thoughts to inspire one another.
We are here to encourage, support, educate, entertain and motivate, and most importantly empower each other,” she said.
Since its inception, the group has taken members through a number of skills training programmes, including soap-making, pastries, make-up training, among others. The group has also for the past one year, donated to the poor and vulnerable in the society. One of such activities is the “Feed the Hawker” campaign, where the group sought to feed some hawkers in the streets of Accra, and also educate them about road safety measures as they go about their businesses in the streets.
“Empowerment of women is a necessity for the very development of a society since it enhances both the quality and the number of human resources available for development.
Let us make the world a better place. There should not be any power or force that can hinder a woman who is ready to be heard,” Mrs. Akill added.
