    About Face of GirlEmpowered

    Face of GirlEmpowered is Ghana’s 1st Business Pageant aimed at equipping contestants between the ages of 17 to 25 with requisite entrepreneurial and business skills to enable them kick-start their business ideas and also to position them to transfer their knowledge and skills to teenage girls and young ladies through training, mentorship, networking and coaching.

    Winner & Runners up of Face of GirlEmpowered (FOGE) will have the task of equipping young girls with the support needed to enable them to identify their potentials, fine tune their ideas, build their entrepreneurial and business skills and pursue dreams of becoming successful business women or career women. FOGE contestants will be tasked to identify challenges that girls face in Ghana and develop entrepreneurial solutions to them.

    It is of the belief of GirlEmpowered that majority of challenges girls face can be overcomed when they are supported to build the requisite skills needed to set up economically viable businesses and become financially independent. As a result, the Face of GirlEmpowered aims to equip contestants with the knowledge and skills needed to set up and run businesses and give them the opportunity to generate, develop and test case their ideas within the duration of the pageant.

    Face of GirlEmpowered will build the capacity of contestants in Business Modelling, Business Planning, Leadership and People Management, Financial Management, Branding, Sales & Marketing, Public Speaking & Presentation, Confidence Building & Personal Branding and Mentorship & Coaching.

    Unlike several other pageants, the Face of GirlEmpowered is more about brains than beauty. Its mission is the identification and development of future women business leaders who are passionate about solving the daunting challenges of girls through the development of entrepreneurial skills in the girl and supporting them to establish viable businesses.
