WolfPack’s Fourth Woman of Worth (WWOW) is the inspirational Patricia Mawuli

pat 2She literally walked out of the bush, from her mud and thatch home, just six years ago, and asked for a job at Kpong Airfield.  Starting by clearing trees, digging out roots and stones in order to hand carve runways for the light aircraft at Kpong, she went on to build several aircraft and become the first woman in the world to receive iRMT certification for working on Rotax Aircraft Engines.  That is not the only first she has up her overalls sleeve!  She was the first woman to be issued the Ghana National Pilots licence and is also the first female flying instructor at Kpong Airfield.  She has not only built aircraft – she has also flown one around Ghana!   Patricia is a volunteer pilot with Medicine on the Move, providing health education materials by air to rural communities and the founder and Principal of the AvTech Academy, teaching young women from the rural communities in engineering, aviation, rural airfield management and health matters.  Patricia teaches in the workshops as well as in the sky.  She is at home with a welding hood on as she is with a headset! in the cockpit.   Patricia is dedicated to providing opportunities for young rural women who have ability, determination and character, but often lack the resources to step out and step up.  Patricia makes it clear that she has had to work hard, very hard, to get to where she is – and she has not stopped – she has plans to fly one of the planes she has built to Germany!   Patricia started with nothing but her own dreams and ambitions.  With no money to invest, she invested her hard work, sweat, tears and perseverance. That self-investment has paid off.   As she says ‘I have discovered that the difference between success and failure is hard work and determination’ – and she should know – for she has broken the mold and set a trail in the sky for other young women to follow towards their individual successes.   The WolfPack Women Of Worth Campaign (WWOW) is a unique campaign to applaud, promote and celebrate young pioneering Ghanaian women for their passionate work and the contribution they have made to inspire the younger generation of women. Every year a different batch of “WolfPack Women Of Worth (WWOW)” will be chosen to headline the campaign. With this campaign WolfPack aims to enhance the aspirations and the pride of young African women by artistically exhibiting successful young innovators, in a series of images with inspirational quotes from each personality. The main aim of this campaign is to inspire up and coming young women across the country and Africa to break the status quo, which tends to be the general saying “it’s a man’s world”.  The campaign will be broken down into two segments. The focus for the first segment will be on above the line marketing which will include media, print, TV, billboards, radio and various social media platforms (facebook, twitter, instagram etc). The second segment will focus on events such as banquets and a school tour. The school tour will entail short seminars; with the WWOW ladies giving motivational speeches to female students in various schools as well as more intimate sessions with those students that have aspirations of entering the same industries as the WWOW’s.
