Second Lady of Ghana and Clean Cooking Champion Samira Bawumia Announced as SEforAll #SevenFor7 Honoree
Her Excellency Mrs. Hajia Samira Bawumia, the Second Lady of Ghana and Clean Cooking Champion, has been announced as one of SEforAll’s #SevenFor7 honorees, a celebration of seven different climate heroes from around the world working in energy and health.
She is a dedicated advocate for women and girls worldwide who works to improve the lives of those affected by gender inequalities, climate change, and other global issues. As a global ambassador for the Clean Cooking Alliance, she uses her platform to raise awareness on the issue of clean cooking and help promote the adoption of clean cooking solutions in her home country of Ghana, where nearly 80% of the population is reliant on inefficient fuels such as wood, charcoal, coal, and kerosene to cook their food.
