As the founder of AfroSwissters, I have created this empowering platform on four pillars: unite, heal, grow, and thrive. Our mission is to bring together women of African descent in Switzerland, fostering a sense of unity and sisterhood. Through AfroSwissters, we provide a nurturing space that allows healing from shared experiences and challenges, empowering our community to grow both personally and professionally. Our ultimate goal is to see women of African descent not only thriving but also making a positive impact in Swiss society. Together, we stand strong, supporting each other as we embark on a journey of empowerment and advancement.

As a current member of the Board of Advisors for the Africa Association St. Gallen since November 2023, I play a key role in advising the president and contributing strategic insights. Leveraging my extensive network, I actively participate in fostering a diverse and nurturing community for students passionate about Africa. Operating in a hybrid model based in St. Gallen, Switzerland, I collaborate with fellow board members and engage with leading companies in the African sector to support the continuation of the Africa Summit at the Hochschule St Gallen. Together, we address pressing socio-economic challenges through communicating solutions, aligning with the Africa Association's dedication to creating a positive impact within the community.

Black Future Week (BFW) is a transformative initiative dedicated to educating, unifying, and inspiring the Black community through periodic social and informational events. In my team role within BFW, I focus on Strategic Partnerships & Ecosystem Building, collaborating with seasoned cretive professionals. Our collective mission is to drive impactful discussions, workshops, film screenings, music, entertainment, and technology experiences during BFW, centering on present-day solutions and future opportunities in the creative and tech industries. This encompasses fostering an open dialogue for partnerships, promoting peer leverage and job creation, and providing access to capital to bridge the funding gap for under-represented founders, ultimately aiming to create multi-generational wealth.

In my past role as a board member and strategic partnerships and platforms advisor, I had the privilege of being part of a dedicated team working towards a shared mission. My contributions involved actively participating in decision-making processes and offering guidance, always keeping in mind the collective vision of our organization.

Functioning as a strategic partnerships and platforms advisor to the founder, I took on the pro bono role of exploring opportunities, activated my personal networks to forge meaningful collaborations and strengthen our network. Emphasizing the power of collective efforts, we sought to build relationships with stakeholders and thought leaders to drive positive change in the communitie we served with our Symposium thought leadership platform.

"Operation Hygiene"

My experience managing the Operation Hygiene project in Chipole, Tanzania was a stark contrast to my previous work in Switzerland and Europe.

 

Operation Hygiene was a project aimed at improving hygiene and sanitation conditions in Chipole, Tanzania, particularly for orphans who lacked access to basic resources. The key performance indicators (KPIs) for the project were the number of sanitation facilities installed, the number of individuals reached, and the impact on the reduction of waterborne diseases in the community. The project also focused on providing education and training on hygiene practices to the local community. The ultimate goal was to improve the health and well-being of the community members by providing them with access to clean water and sanitation facilities. This project provided me with valuable cross-cultural communication skills and taught me how to develop resilience in challenging environments. By improving the living conditions and health of the orphans in the area, I was able to make a positive impact towards SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) and SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being). Working in Sub-Saharan Africa also exposed me to unique challenges and taught me how to adapt and work closely with local communities on the ground.
