The Thorough Empowerment and Development for Women and Girls in Sierra Leone (TEDEWOSIL) Friday 28th organizes award ceremony to recognize sizeable number of women for job well done.
Haja Kadi Johnson, who doubles as producer and presenter of ‘woman to woman talk’, was among women awarded for their exceptional and outstanding performances.
While admonishing the awardees, the Chairperson, Mrs. Chiguozee said it is the wishes of TEDEWOSIL to see women display outstanding performances at their respective places of work.
“We therefore say however that as an organization, we recognize you (the awardees) as women of substance for your roles in fishing out women as they showcase their contributions in society, Mrs. Chiguozee said.
In an interview with Haja Kadi Johnson she said the award has added value to her as a person and that she feels more than honoured to be given such a reverential award by an outstanding women organization as TEDEWOSIL.
“I pay my respect to TEDWOSIL for awarding me, Haja Kadi Johnson said.
“To me, the awards were fairly given and bear no tribal, political and nepotism sentiment.”
She wrapped up by saying that the award has added social value to her personality, and that she feels being recognized for working assiduously in the promotion of women in society. She however advised the other women to continue to work hard as it is sure they will one day get the reward.
