Women Who Lead - Nimatu Siisu

Driven by empathy and the desire to plough back the benefits of their education into their communities, CAMA’s young women leaders see the world through a lens of opportunity - the opportunity to facilitate sustainable change by breaking down the barriers that keep too may girls out of school. One such woman is Nimatu Siisu from the North Gonja District in Ghana. Supported by Camfed to complete her education, Nimatu is now an inspirational leader and philanthropist in the CAMA network. She has set up a foundation to help children stay in school, and, through her Changemakers Girls’ Club, mentors 60 girls at the only Senior High School in her district.
