Host Committee Spotlight: Leymah Gbowee

November 16, 2018  

Leymah Gbowee knows first-hand what women's empowerment can do. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 for her work on bringing women together to stand up to fighting factions of men in Liberia, to bring peace to her country after years of Civil War. Now a world leader and advocate for women everywhere, Leymah joined the host committee of the Paper Fig Foundation because she believes in the mission.

"There is nothing more important than empowering women with the tools they need to become financially independent, " she said. "I support Paper Fig Foundation in working towards that goal."

Join Leymah and the rest of our illustrious Host Comittee for BELA MUSANA on Giving Tuesday, November 27th. Get your tickets today!
