One of Ghana’s prestigious award schemes, the Ghana Outstanding Women’s Awards (GOWA), will later this year mark its fifth anniversary of honouring women in philanthropy and career excellence.
Organised by ASKOF Productions, the awards will confer honours on Ghanaian women who contribute their quota to society through charity and socio-economic developmental projects.
GOWA has grown over the past years, and this year’s edition promises lots of excitement.
Speaking in an interview ahead of the anniversary launch in June this year, Afua Asantewaa Aduonum, Executive Director of ASKOF Productions, indicated that the journey to rewarding women’s excellence had been overwhelmingly positive.
According to her, the awards have sparked a desire in women to become more involved in social change, and change the narrative by empowering other vulnerable women and children.
“Celebrating a five-year milestone is very special for us as organisers of the awards scheme, considering the various successes that have been chalked,” she said.
“This year’s awards would be spectacular, with further details to be announced at the launch in June, so all women should brace themselves for a memorable event later in the year,” she said.
The past four editions of GOWA have seen the likes of Afia Pokua (2018), Velma Owusu Bempah (2019) and Deloris Frimpong Manso, popularly known as “Delay,” winning the topmost awards.
