Women’s Month 2023: Samata
Tell us about yourself.
I am Samata, a British-born Ghanaian fashion entrepreneur. I am known for my work as CEO of Suzy Amis Cameron's RCGD Global, which, as part of its activities, delivers sustainable fashion on the red carpet at the Oscars each year. I am also keen to spotlight. I am currently developing a WEB 3 offering for this growing community, and have always been passionate to bridge the gap and help people to see that they are always, and always have been part of this conversation about sustainability, and that sustainability is a concept which encompasses not just environment and social issues, but one that centers culture and knowledge as being crucial.
Why and how did you get involved with RAINS?
The Regional Advisory Information and Network Systems (RAINS) is a Ghanaian registered non-governmental organization that is committed to promoting the rights of the marginalized in society. Formed in 1993, RAINS has a long history of work that improves the lives of deprived communities and sections of the society. I love that it is led by Africans for Africans - specifically in Ghana, where I am from.
What will RAINS do with your donation dollars right now?
They are starting up and I love supporting from the grassroots. They will work with communities and development partners to improve the quality of life for vulnerable groups, especially children, women, girls and people with disabilities by strengthening local structures to take actions to promote and ensure fairness for all people in society.
Are there other ways to get involved?
In the words of RAINS, vocalize for a just society that is based on equity with equal opportunities for all and respect for diversity.
