GUBA founder wins 2013 African Women in Europe gong

DELIGHTED: Dentaa Amoateng

ENTREPRENUER AND founder of the Ghana UK Based Achievement Awards (GUBA), Dentaa Amoateng, has been named winner of this year’s African Women in Europe (AWE) Award.

The mother-of-three will receive her award on June 29 for her work in promoting Ghanaian achievement in the UK and for her charity work, which includes founding the GUBA Foundation — an offshoot of the awards that supports autistic children within Ghana and the British-Ghanaian community.

In addition to her charity work and awards, Amoateng also manages the career of Ghana international footballer and former Sunderland player Asamoah Gyan.

Speaking about her win, Amoateng, 30, said: “I am honoured, humbled and delighted in equal measures to win the prestigious 2013 African Women in Europe Award 2013.

“Since their formation in 2011, the AWEs have helped empower African women living in Europe and significantly raised awareness of the vast contribution they make both to their native and adopted homelands.”

Amoateng, who was born in Juaso, Ghana and moved with her family to the UK age five, added: “The awards reflect a positive image of African women as intelligent, hard-working, multi-tasking, ambitious and socially-aware, and I am proud to live up to those ideals and serve as a role model for African women everywhere.”

Now in its second year, the annual AWE Awards were founded to recognise the achievements of, and to empower, African women in Europe to bring a positive change in themselves and surroundings.

A spokesperson for the AWE Awards said Dentaa was “an icon and role model to all African women living and working in Europe.

“She has already achieved so much in the worlds of entertainment, sport, business and social change, while also being a devoted wife and mother, and as such is a credit to Ghana and inspirational ambassador for the whole of Africa.”
