Hey ladies and gents! I want to share with you all something I’ve been working on for almost 2 months now. I recently joined the Memunatu Magazine team as a campaign manager for their Indiegogo campaign. Memunatu is a classroom magazine for teenage girls in West Africa that promotes literacy, leadership, and empowerment. This start-up was founded by two friends of mine (fellow Penn alums of Sierra Leonean descent). I am deeply passionate about African development, so this is a cause I hold dear to my heart. If you are in the Philadelphia area, we’ll be hosting a launch event (information below). And even if you’re not in Philly, please do donate to our campaign (see link below), thanks!
Memunatu Magazine Campaign Launch:
Want to participate in a social enterprise that empowers teen girls in West Africa?

Memunatu is a classroom magazine for secondary school girls in West Africa that has been recognized as an Echoing Green Semifinalist, Harvard Business School New Venture Competition Semifinalist, Dell Social Innovation Fellow, Wharton VIP company, and more! Mariama Kabia, the Penn alum who co-founded the startup is coming to campus to talk about Memunatu, introduce the campaign, and provide opportunities for you to get involved!
