Today I’m highlighting the amazing work of Bernice Dapaah, Chief Executive Director of the Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative. Bernice’s work supports many in the community as well as being acknowledged worldwide for innovation.
Under her leadership, the initiative developed from a project idea to an award-winning social enterprise that has won several international awards, including the 2013 UNFCCC Momentum For Change Light House Activity Award (Women For Results Category), World Business and Development Award 2012, UN Habitat/Dubai International Best Practice Award 2012, Samsung/Generations For Peace Impact Award 2012, GIZ Impact Business Award 2011, and UNEP SEED Initiative Award 2010. In 2013, Dapaah was named a Vital Voices Lead Fellow and won the 2013 International Women Alliance World of Difference Award. She sits on the advisory board of the World Intellectual Property Organization GREEN in Switzerland.
Bernice is a graduate of the Christian Service University in Ghana.
