From AWEP to Binti Foundation

To further express her humanitarianism, Johari was nominated to represent Tanzania in a highly successful 2012 African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), The U.S. Economic System and Business Development. In 2012, women entrepreneurs from 40 African nations convened in Washington for the third meeting of the African Women’s Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), which ran from June 3rd to 23rd held in conjunction with the U.S. hosted 2012 AGOA Forum in Washington, DC, and a U.S.-Africa Business Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. In this conference she was able to get the opportunity to meet with leading U.S. and African policymakers and business people. She also had the opportunity to meet the U.S. Secretary of State Hon.

Premised on her drive to promote the role of women entrepreneurship, Johari Sadiq, has set out a non-profit fashion line to create awareness for the empowerment of the girl-child, by spearheading a frontier that will derive support from the community of fashion designers, in order to champion gender programs and promote quality education and child rights for the girl child. It is on this notion that the company derived its name BINTI – meaning GIRL in Swahili.
