Elizabeth Akua-Nyarko Patterson
Elizabeth Akua-Nyarko Patterson is the founder and executive director of the Girls Education Initiative of Ghana, a foundation that provides academic and financial support for girls including applicants with special needs. Her personal experience of acquiring a physical disability after a traumatic brain injury, combined with academic research into this area compelled her to start the foundation and ensure that at least 10% of students admitted had a special need.
Vlisco nominated her because we were touched by Elizabeth’s story. The fact that despite all that had happened in her life she has proven that disability is not inability. She has strong values and a big dream of ensuring all girls and women have equal footing in Ghana and across the globe. Her story will inspire many women in Ghana
