Tanzanian ‘Woman of the Year Africa’ award winner Irene Kiwia 

Kiwia greatly commends Africa Reconnect for recognising her contribution to the society, saying that the award she got represents a number of people who in one way or another contributed towards her success.

“I would like to thank Africa Reconnect for this great honor! There are so many women in Africa, working tirelessly and passionately every day, doing amazing things to make our continent a better place, yet here I am being honored as a woman of the year Africa! It is indeed humbling,”she commended!

“I would therefore like to dedicate this award to women who care beyond what they can do to provide for themselves, and instead think about what they can do to make other people’s lives better! Women who understand that to do well one must first do good. Women who do well regardless of what they get in return.

Women who understand that Africa’s journey to prosperity will take more than a few success stories. Women who wake up in the morning thinking and planning for others. Women who believe that the African story, is a beautiful song, that needs a lead to kick-start it, but requires a choir to complete it.,” she said
