Some top Ghanaian female celebrities who are doing very well in their area of work will be honoured by Ghana Association of Women Entrepreneurs (GAWE) this year.
Names of celebs that have popped up as likely recipients of the GAWE 2012 award include Yvonne Nelson, Selassie Ibrahim, Shirley Frimpong Manso, Akosua Agyapong, Luckie Lawson, Becca, Nana Adwoa Awindor and Leila Djansi.  

GAWE is an association of self-employed women manufacturers and exporters of goods and services in Ghana.
It is a non governmental, non-profit making organization formed in 1991 and formally registered as a company limited by guarantee in 1993.
 It is also an affiliate of the African Federation of Women Entrepreneurs (AFWE),   established by 25 African countries including Ghana through the initiative of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
 At the Mensvic Grand Hotel in Accra later this year, GAWE will be rewarding hardworking female celebrities who are active in business as part of a four-day  women’s conference dubbed, 18th WASME International Conference.
GAWE is hosting this year’s event on behalf of the World Association of Small Medium Enterprises (WASME).
President of GAWE Mrs. Lucia Quachey noted that it was into the art of craving for economic solutions for women entrepreneurs in the Ghana and the world at large. Hence as part of the confab, it had lined up a number of influential and hard working female celebrities to be rewarded.
“GAWE has been organizing this conference for the past 17 years and every year the association seeks to reward all hard working women in business from entertainment through to business. Hence this year’s theme is: ‘Empowering Women through Entrepreneurship: Issues, Opportunities and Approaches’ with the objective to enhance awareness and create a more informed understanding on the opportunities, issues, and approaches to entrepreneurial activities for women empowerment.
“We believe these women are in business building a career in this art industry which is mostly dominated by males is no joke; hence GAWE wants to say thumbs up to them for all their hard work and I challenge them as well as the rest of the women in the world out there that there is a need to be strong economically too,” Mrs. Lucia Quachey added.
Even though she did not disclose the names of the celebrities to be rewarded, she stated that in the fourth week to the conference, there would be a detailed list out to the press.
For now, her organization is on the lookout for hardworking women entrepreneurs.
The 18th WASME international confab is open to the general public for participation and for those small scale businesses that are into made in Ghana goods, there is a space for exhibition.
