One of Ghana’s few young females into water management Victoria Naashika Quaye has been picked to contest in the global #WaterWomen contest.
The #WaterWomen photo contest instituted by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) is recognizing women giving off their best in water governance, but are “visibly missing from the water dialogue.”
According to SIWI, “images of women as decision makers, water managers, effective water users and stewards are very hard to come by.
“Through #WaterWomen we aim to collect images that illustrate these important roles and tell the stories of women as invaluable water managers, decision makers and users.”
Victoria Quaye, who is the CEO of NaaviQ Company Limited, told Starrfmonline.comshe is enthused about SIWI’s initiative because it is a morale booster.
“I am quite excited to be involved in this global contest,” Quaye, who is a regular panelist on GhOne’s Tales of the Powder Room show, stated.
“I’m happy SIWI has recognized me as a nominee and I hope to make an impact. The recognition a lone attests to the fact that my good works are being seen beyond the shores of Ghana. I will entreat all Ghanaians to vote for me,” Quaye opined.
