🏵️Forbes Africa featured Michelle Takon,Founder of Narnia Events, based in Nigeria in their Rising Women: A Celebration of Women. Media Africa would like to congratulate Michelle for a job well done!

Here is an excerpt of the narration from Forbes AFRICA

What advice would you give young women entrepreneurs?

Firstly, young women entrepreneurs need to understand the business they’d like to go into; the business environment, target market, and then ensure that their business ideas will solve a problem before they embark on their entrepreneurial journey.

I would also tell them to make sure that whatever they choose to do, should be borne out of passion and not based on what other people are doing or how much money others are making.

Media Africa would like to congratulate Michelle Takon on a job well done!

The #marathon kicked off at 9am on the #StatenIsland side of the Verazzano-Narrows Bridge, with thousands of racers from around the world following a 26.2-mile course through #Brooklyn, #Queens, #Manhattan and #theBronx before doubling back into Manhattan, where they crossed the finish line in #CentralPark.

The first to break the finish-line tape was #GeoffreyKamworor of #Kenya with an impressive time of two hours, eight minutes and 13 seconds - the 26-year-old's second win in three years.

In the women's race, #JoycilineJepkosgei came first after outpacing four-time winner Mary Keitany in her first race ever at 26.2 miles. Jepkosgei's unofficial finish time of two hours, 22 minutes, and 38 seconds was seven seconds off the course record. https://lnkd.in/d-N2r8H

Congratulations are due to Freweini Mebrahtu - Please vote for her!

When Freweini got her period at age 13, she panicked.

Like most girls in northern Ethiopia, she suffered in silence, never mentioning it to her mother or sisters. With no access to sanitary products, she coped by using rags.

Mebrahtu went on to study chemical engineering in the United States. She still remembers her first trip to an American drugstore in 1983.

In Ethiopia menstruation is still considered taboo. Disposable sanitary products are very expensive and often unavailable, so nearly 75% of Ethiopian women and girls don't have access to the menstrual supplies they need to manage their periods.

On average, one in 10 girls in Ethiopia miss school for reasons related to their periods; in some rural areas, this increases almost 50%. Missing school can lead girls to fall behind in class and eventually drop out.

Mebrahtu believes no girl should miss school because of her period.
In 2005, she designed and patented a reusable menstrual pad. Today, she and her team produce 750,000 pads a year at her Mariam Seba Sanitary Products Factory, named for her daughter.
Since 2009, nearly 800,000 girls and women have benefited from her work.
Traditionally, girls have used rags or dry grasses to deal with their period. Mebrahtu's pads are fully washable, with an absorbent cotton lining and waterproof backing. They are secured to the underwear with a button. The design allows it to fold up into a small, discreet package.

More than 80% of the pads she manufactures are sold to non-governmental organizations that distribute them for free.

That changed when she met Dr. Lewis Wall, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology from the US. He and his wife were so impressed that they created a nonprofit, Dignity Period, to support her work.

Freweini has been selected and is currently competing to become a CNN Hero. Please vote for her.
