The ace actress, broadcaster and multiple international award winner, Akumaa Mama Zimbi known privately as Mrs. Joyce Akumaa Dongotey-Padi who has become a cultural icon in Ghana and gradually stepping to other parts of Africa has decided to give meaning to Mother’s Day celebrations in Ghana. After donating clothes, shoes and bags to hundreds of widows and their children at Ekumfi Abor and Enyan-Maim both in the Central Region a couple of weeks ago, Mama Zimbi has chosen to celebrate this year’s Mother’s Day with the widows and their children in Somanya and its surrounding villages. The gathering will also be an occasion to formally inaugurate the Somanya Widows Association as part of the Widows Alliance Network (WANE) project for sustainable economic development of widows in Ghana, which is one of the projects undertaken by the Mama Zimbi Foundation (MZF). Through WANE, over 300 widow groupings have been formed in Ghana, with membership swelling to over 6,000 nationwide. Mama Zimbi Foundation (MZF) will this year hold its 4th National Widows Alliance Conference (WAC) on Saturday, June 23, 2012 at the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre, La with the theme ‘Widowhood Is Not A Curse, But Ordained By God’. This conference is also to celebrate the United Nations International Widows Day which falls on the same day. The National Widows Alliance Conference (WAC) for advocacy and national widows cohesion is organized on a large scale as the grand occasion where all of Ghana and Africa are made to appreciate the roles widows are playing as ambassadors of change in their communities. It also serves as the ideal dialogue platform for the advocacy of a comprehensive policy and legal direction for elevating the standards of widows in Ghana.]]>
