013 | Aisha Addo: The sky is the limit
< 1 day ago
Aisha Addo says she thrives on working to make the world a better place for women. After leaving her native Ghana to move to Canada at 14 years old, she found herself in foster care for two years. At 18 years old she started 'Power to Girls Foundation'. Aisha wanted to provide young girls with a space where they could be inspired, empowered and provided with mentorship and support - all things she wished she'd had growing up. Seven years on, she's taken the foundation to Ghana, and is looking to expand to other African countries. She's also working on building the first Leadership Centre for Women in Ghana to provide skills training for women, so they can gain economic freedom. And as if running a foundation wasn't enough, Aisha has recently launched Canada's first ride-sharing service for women by women. The service, which is called DriveHer, was prompted by seeing the young girls from her foundation struggling to find safe transport, particularly late at night. And what's next on her list of goals? Well, to become Ghana's first female President of course… Aisha was named 'One of 100 Black Women to Watch in Canada', as well as one of the '150 Black Women making history in Toronto'. She also received the 'Young Black and Gifted Award for Community Service' and was named a 'Black Diversity Group Role Model'.
