Thank you for stopping by today. There are many compartments to my website: advocacy, an online shop, and even a resource hub. I’ve decided I will no longer be keeping my ethics, values, morals, tips, and character growths to myself. Lately, there’s been a strong tugging, deep within, urging me to share. Perhaps there might be people who are in desperate need of what I have to offer. I’ll be sharing a lot here on my website, no more contemplating what people will think of me. I’ll be living audaciously bold and authentically in this virtual world, Emma Advocates. So, jump right in and subscribe for newsletter!
The vision of Emma Advocates was inspired by the biblical passage, Proverbs 31. Emma Advocates is about Emma striving to be a virtuous woman who embodies the love of Christ. According to Proverbs 31:8-31, the virtuous woman was an advocate, an entrepreneur, a helper of the less fortunate, and a resourceful woman. Emma Advocates entails all the following.
Advocacy – Child & Health Advocacy (Nonprofit)
I’m a child and health advocate. As a child advocate, I’m founder of Combating CSA. The organization focuses on child sexual abuse prevention and education advocacy. We educate children in Ghana on Sexual Abuse prevention. We also adopt old and abandoned libraries and revamp them with books and educational supplies. The Emma Advocates Library aims to educate and empower young minds in Ghana. As a health advocate, I educate children and adolescents on dental hygiene, feminine hygiene and disease prevention. My advocacy work focuses mainly on children, adolescents and females. These individuals are the most vulnerable in society.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy”
Business – A charity-driven lifestyle brand
I’m also an entrepreneur! This brand is an African charity-driven lifestyle brand. From headwraps, to rattan bags, to waist beads, and everything else! As we all know, a lifestyle brand is a brand that attempts to embody the values, aspirations, interests of a group or a culture. The lifestyle brand beautifully portrays our culture as Africans in an elegant manner. I hope the brand inspires, guides, and motivate people to commit to a life of benevolence. 20-30% of all proceeds goes to support the Emma Advocates Library Initiative. This initiative adopts old and abandoned libraries in Ghana and fills them with books. Most of the products are handmade, with a mark of quality and elegance. I can guarantee you that all my products will have a mark of quality, excellence, and luxury; all for a reasonable price. It is my desire to see others live out our culture boldly and audaciously with this brand, while giving back to our country Ghana as well.
“She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. 16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard. 17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. 18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night. 19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.“
Resources – Character Growth, Recipes, Study Tips, Faith and more
I’m committed to evolving and growing. I ensure there are many streams of knowledge and wisdom flowing into my life to generate growth. I’m committed to growing in all areas of my life; mentally, emotionally, socially, academically, financially and even spiritually. I’ll be delving into character growth as well. There’ll be blogging series on many character traits, ethics, and values. As a big and academian, I’ll also be sharing study tips, free study downloadable templates and so much more! With cooking being one of my favorite hobbies, I’ll also be sharing many recipes!
“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. 26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.”
Proverbs 31:25 -27
