What is WomenFuture Awards?

WomenFuture Awards is an annual award of Woman of the Year in Zanzibar. Through a nomination process, a winner will be chosen by a jury. We will turn the spotlight on an outstanding woman in Zanzibar who has done something extraordinary or special by profiling herself as a role model and an inspiration for other women on the island.

The award is a recognition of a woman who has taken leadership in some form or another, whether it is to elevate others in her community, achievement of business or management success, entrepreneurship or in other ways been a driving force in the society – and thus has the potential to inspire and be looked upon as a role model for other women.
