Yesterday I posted on a couple traveling and working in Africa. Suzanne Stevens and her husband Michael Gingerich. Mike is my nephew.
. PLease note the correction to the foundation addy!
Their project is Wisdom Exchange TV and they are looking for subscribers to the site which is free.
I am posting their letter in it’s entirety below. Please enjoy, subscribe, and pass on!
As you know my husband, Mike Gingerich, and I are travelling through Africa for the next year interviewing women leaders for Wisdom Exchange TV, amongst other philanthropic initiatives.
This is a pioneering initiative that not only are we excited about, but we believe will provide some fundamental leadership lessons for inspiring and already achieved women leaders.
Women are the change agents of Africa, and with higher education they can change many of the injustices that are done to women in the developing world.
We are asking you to subscribe to Wisdom Exchange TV and share the site with your friends. The subscription is FREE, and we will just inform you when a new episode is upload (by the way, this is quite the process in Kenya due to limited bandwidth).
The reason we are asking,
1. You will gain insight and perspective into Women from a huge continent.
2. You will also be assisting in helping us create awareness of the site, which will assist in gaining sponsorship for Africa Business Women Connected Summit taking place in Ethiopia in 2013 – promoting international trade.
The more people who subscribe, the more compelling to sponsors, the bigger impact we can make on women in Africa.
3. You will also help create awareness for the Ignite Excellence Foundation (www.igniteexcellencefoundation.org), where Mike and I are presently handing out three scholarships for under-graduates and post-graduates to invest in women leadership.
The belief is, the more women in leadership the more women will own land, be able to get passports, and will not be violated.

We appreciate your support and we look forward to hearing your updates on facebook, linked-in and via email.
